End of the winter day –

A line of singing people

Moves through the wood.



(haiku – Tito, Arashiyama, 7.2.09; photo – Noriko Kan, Mt. Ishizuchi; Japanese translation – Hisashi Miyazaki)

  1. Richard Donovan Says:

    Superb photo accompanying an evocative haiku.

    The compactness of the translation is fabulous.

  2. The “line of singing people” generates a kind of warmth within the cold evoked by the first and last lines and photo– delicious!
