Moritake, No1.

One fallen flower

returning to the

branch?…oh no!

a white butterfly.



Buson No 17.

Standing still at dusk

listen….in far


the song of froglings.



Onitsura, No6



But see the mountain…

shaking with the

waves of heat

where the day has gone.

Chora No2



The very planets

gleaming through

its silhouette…

frozen willow tree.

Ryoto, no1



Someone is walking

over the wooden


the deep frog-silence.

Buson, no13



At Takiguchi

voices calling

for a light…

darkening spring rain.

sweet spring shower…

enough to wet

the tiny shells

on the little beach


Issa, no5



Placing the kitten

to weigh her

on the balance…

she went on playing


Onitsura, no3



Silent cherry-bloom….

again with your

old eloquence

address my inner ear.
