Peony Remains QuietShirao Kaya lived in the 1700s and he enjoyed the style of famous haiku poet Matsuo Basho. He followed a quiet, simple life.
In the dark garden
Of the night,
The peony remains quiet.
-- Shirao Kaya
Here is a bookmark I made of this haiku. I took the photo of a peony bush which grows against my back porch. It makes lovely, rich pink flowers.
