Haiga223-Basho


Haiku by Basho. From "Narrow Road to Oku"
I designed the blades of the grasses like swords. "dream, aftermath" is expressed in a cicader shell. The cicada will appear again in the later haiku.

Rita Odeh of Israel generously translated my haiku into Arabic.(see the link: Kuni's haiku in Rumanian translation)

My haiku novel "Lady without shoes" is on view at a Japanese haiu website (http://weekly-haiku.blogspot.com/). Those who can read Japanese are welcome to visit the site.

The artwork is wonderful.

I like how the 'circle of life' symbol is also discreetly present without any overcrowding of symbolism.

Wonderful wonderful artwork.
