It is a sort of sequel to the "Blossom clouds" haiku, where Basho was only listening, drunk with blossoms. Now he is looking and there, above the clouds of cherry blossoms, he sees the impressive tiled roof of the great Kannon Temple in Asakusa, Sensoji...
This poem has been engraved on a haiku stone standing to the left of the short flight of stairs leading to the Benten Shrine.
[Kannon's tiled roof - Main hall of Sensoji, Asakusa]
Kannon's tiled roof
is seen far away
Kannon no | iraka miyaritsu | hana no kumo
