  1. The last haiku, which I enjoyed, reminds me of one I wrote at Osawa Pond in Sagano on my first stay in Kyoto in ’74: one thing looking at another looking at another. In my haiqua, I’m one of the three ‘watchers’ or ‘watched’; in yours however, as the recording poet, you are a fourth!
    Waiting for a heron
    That is waiting for a fish:
    My stare reflected
    To the water trigger.
    How did you get the print to be so small on your posting?! I guess you copied it in from another doc?

  2. For the context of Hisashi’s last haiku and a sketch by him, please see the new page ‘Haiga Walk’.
