Summer grass, Autumn wind premiere

Summer grass, Autumn wind

for oboe, viola, and piano

What voice
what song, spider,
in the autumn wind?

Summer grass -
all that’s left
of warrior’s dreams

Two haiku by Basho dealing with two seasons,
when death is recalled in the season of living,
when life silently deals with the season of dying,
when the two intertwine in their passing.
