Nobody does it better than Basho. Nobody, I suspect, could present the contrast of the summer moon so well, a welcome sight for us, but filtered through the murky prism of dark water might seem terrifying (or perhaps an invitation to something unattainable?).

はかなき夢を
夏の月

in the trap
the summer moon
