Daybreak, Asilomar State Park, September, 2012.
Tired of sleeping on a grass pillow
I went out on the beach while it was still dark:
Daybreak: a white fish is white, just an inch.
This version of a famous haiku is found in
From the Country of Eight Islands;
an anthology of Japanese Poetry,
edited and translated by Hiroaki Sato and
Burton Watson, Doubleday, 1981, page 281.
Many of Basho's haiku, such as this one,
come with a short headnote or explanation of the setting.
