What is Wabi Sabi and who is Basho ?

Matsuo Bashō was born in 17th century Japan and is considered the greatest 
master of haiku. He also brought the Zen concept of Wabi Sabi into modern 
language. Wabi Sabi is difficult to define. Among many other things it reveres nature, austerity,  elegance, the texture of things repaired, authenticity, simplicity, being 
awake, tranquility, genuine expression, listening not talking, humility, solitude,  
modesty, unconventionality, imperfection, impermanence,  and creativity.
