“Summer night-- even the stars are whispering to each other.” — Kobayashi Issa

“Summer night-- even the stars are whispering to each other.” — Kobayashi Issa

I love this sweet and simple quote.  Summer came to Seattle today and sadly I’ll be enjoying this beautiful night alone because the hubby is on a 72-hr shift.  He works much too hard.

Kobayashi Issa lived from 1763 to 1828 and lived in Nagano Prefecture (back then known as Shinano Province.  He was a poet and was most known for his haiku poems and journals.  He’s regarded by many experts as one of the four haiku masters in Japan.

I love old quotes that are still perfect for today’s life.  As much as we think we invented the wheel, we’re just taking a journey along the same path many have before and man will after us take.  I love that these treasures were saved and preserved by our past generations to be shared now and in the future.

I’m hoping you’re enjoying a beautiful summer night with your loved one and will take a few minutes to commune with the stars.
