VeraCausa9: Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) is indisputably the most famous Japanese poet. A master of Haiku who took it to the level of art. His Zen training changed the essence of haiku, from humorous to the beauty of nature, solitude & transience of life. [1]

ikalin1: Turkey’s fight is against terrorists, not Kurds or civilians. A reminder to those who attempt to condemn or threaten Turkey: It is estimated that 1600 to 3800 civilians in Raqqa and 9.000 to 11.000 civilians were killed in Mosul coalition operations. Accountability?

ikalin1: Turkey is determined to fight against terrorists no matter where they are or who is behind them. Turkey’s priority is to ensure peace, stability and prosperity for all regardless of region, religion or ethnicity.

Bahriye1773: Quit hypocrisy...you are the last person to speak about war crimes and woman’s role in national security... Look at the picture, see the war crime and an American woman’s efforts for national security ...

keithvarnum: Winter solitude- in a world of one colour the sound of the wind. ~ Bashō Matsuo

vvanwilgenburg: Reports co-head of Syrian Future Party Hevrin Khalaf killed on the road by Turkish artillery strike. I am trying to get more info. She was a very strong female politician. I interviewed her once in Ain al Issa.

DrAlakbarov: Any ninjutsu lover, must visit the city of Iga in Japan. The town developed in the Edo period under the Tokugawa Shogunate as a castle town under Iga Ueno Castle. Iga is known as the birthplace of the haiku poet Matsuo Bashō and the home of the ninja Hattori Hanzō.

trailofleaves_: "On this road Where nobody else travels Autumn nightfall" - Matsuo Basho

snarwani: Seems Kurdish YPG don't give a shit about their US allies either. Kurdish militants co-locate near a US post, fire at Turkish forces - so that Turks retaliate near American troops and drive US media into hysterics. A manouver literally out of the Israeli playbook.

ragipsoylu: “Turkey is still hosting 300,000 Syrian Kurds from Kobane. Why don’t you talk about this, America?” Erdogan says

poetrypotion: "When composing a verse let there not be a hair's breath separating your mind from what you write; composition of a poem must be done in an instant, like a woodcutter felling a huge tree or a swordsman leaping at a dangerous enemy." — Matsuo Bashō

Doranimated: If the US armed & trained Hamas and ran joint patrols and operations with it along Israel’s border, Israel would be beside herself. The US has, in effect, done just that to Turkey by arming, training, & equipping the PKK, which, btw, defends the perimeter of US bases in N. Syria.

EGozuguzelli: Peace Operation of Turkey is legitimate! It's normal that they can't accept it.Because they've been feeding these terrorists many years in their countries. Many Western/Asian military commander trained the PKK's members.They hanged the PKK flag in their YPG/SDG offices.Where w/u?

rezaqqi: "Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of others, instead, seek what they sought." — Matsuo Basho

JTDWoodward: The moon is brighter since the barn burned. Matsuo Basho

bekiroglu1: Think twice before slandering that Turkey will slaughter Kurds. Turkey's only enemy is seperatist PKK and its branches.

risbuttar: “Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise; seek what they sought.” ― Matsuo Basho

RyanGirdusky: The American media portrays the Kurds as American loving freedom fighters, but the Kurdish YPG have been responsible for recent attacks on both sides of the Syrian border recently.

Poem of the day

Town Eclogues: Tuesday; St. James's Coffee-House

SILLIANDER and PATCH.
THOU so many favours hast receiv'd,
Wondrous to tell, and hard to be believ'd,

Like thee successful, such their bloomy youth,
Renown'd alike for gallantry and truth.
