Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #86, Basho’s “this autumn”

Our host writes. “In this “Basho-month” all the Tan Renga Challenges are starting with a “hokku” by Basho and this week I have a nice haiku for you to start with. It’s one who Basho wrote in the last months of his life. That feeling of death is very well descr4ibed in this haiku, I easily could sense that feeling of dying..”
