    Hi Katsiaryna,

    Your poem is very interesting. There are many images and senses but everything seems to fit together. Furthermore, the point you make about how the road to enlightenment can separate to a path of justice or compassion creates a contrasting understanding of Basho’s character as we see through his reaction to prostitutes. Although, he appreciates nature and evanescence of each moment, he doesn’t seem to have reached that peaceful point of sorrow and emptiness as he still is held back by the idea of justice, idea of what is right and wrong.
