SHIKI, Masaoka

A cock crows

A cock crows

at the foot of the small Mt. Fuji

peach blossoms

Blooming azaleas

Blooming azaleas

in a hollow on a cliff

a Buddha stands

After killing a Spider

After killing

a spider, how lonely I feel

in the cold of night!

Pruning A Rose

pruning a rose

sound of the scissors

on a bright May day


Night; and once again,

the while I wait for you, cold wind

turns into rain.

A Dog Howling

A dog howling

sound of footsteps

longer nights
