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)

Superb photo accompanying an evocative haiku.
The compactness of the translation is fabulous.
The “line of singing people” generates a kind of warmth within the cold evoked by the first and last lines and photo– delicious!
