A monk sips morning tea,
the chrysanthemum's flowering.

I like this sort of poetry. It is very visual, calming and excellent for meditation.
Wow what a nice theme
A well penned haiku
To drink your tea with so much care, your tea might be drinking you.
The chrysanthemum, you will feel, if careful: blooming.
A Monk Sips Morning Tea - Poem by Matsuo Basho.) **Tea. Flowers. Quietude. What a moment; a great place to be.
I love this Basho's hokku.. and it always recalls to my memory Saigyo’s waka poetry..
una bella immagine di serenità zen..
