Every Day Inspiration

Today’s exercise is about expansion. Take one of the Basho poems below, and expand on it, or use it as a jumping off point to write your own poem. Move beyond the haiku to address the essence of the poem. 

With every gust of wind,
the butterfly changes its place
on the willow.

 
A lovely spring night
suddenly vanished while we
viewed cherry blossoms
