On September 4, Dr. Gabi Greve sent us a comment on 'Basho's stay in Kisakata, Akita (Part 1), saying "lately I enjoy Basho and the Sake no Hosomichi. And I wonder what Basho might have eaten at Kisakata."
I answered her question, writing my haiku and tanka on the Akita International Haiku Network today. Please look at our site: http://akitahaiku.wordpress.com/.
Here I'd like to show you my haiku and tanka.
(nama gaki ya fukuryusui no arai kana)
Fresh oyster ―
being washed by
（amamizu wa buna no ne ni fushi nagaredasu umibe ni tsukite kaki wo araeri)
Rainwater collects under the roots of beech trees
and then streams
reaching the shore and washing oyster
