Issa, No14.

 

 

Sparrow family…

playing at hide and seek

in the tea bushes.

Issa, No 13.

 

 

What a cooling breeze!

now all stifled

grasshoppers

gaily sing again.

 

red flower

Issa. No11.

 

 

Dew evaporates

and all our world

is dew…so dear,

so fresh, so fleeting.

Issa, No 11

 

 

stubborn woodpecker…

still hammering

at twilight

at that single spot.

Issa, no6.

 

 

That fat old bull-frog

sat there staring

back at me

with a sour face.

Issa, no8

 

 

Ah bold nightingale

even before

his lordship

you won’t mend your song

 

Issa, no5

 

 

Placing the kitten

to weigh her

on the balance…

she went on playing

 

Issa,no5

 

 

Serenely

gazing up at the mountain –

a toad.

 

Issa, no5

 

 

in the shadows of the cherry blossom

complete strangers

there are none….

 

Issa, no4

 

 

a great big cat

flopped out asleep

on a round paper fan.

 

Issa, no3

 

 

the peony

it had to be measured

with a fan.

 

Issa, no2

 

 

in from the dark

and out into the dark

that’s a cat in love!

Issa, no1

 

 

snow melts

and the village floods

with children.
