Haiga 337

Haiku from the spaceship. This haiku was written while Mrs. Naoko Yamazaki, the astronaut, was on duty in the spaceship.
Artwork and the English translation are by me.

My haiga books are available here:
Haiga eBook "wind", "water" and "light"

Love this!

I've written a few space haiku as part of a “Rocket Dreams” commission I received alongside NASA photographs of the race to the moon.

This is Sputnik 1 opening the way for space exploration and for eventual future moon exploration.

Read/performed U.K. National Poetry Day October 4th 2007 with Space Historian Piers Bizony and NASA images, as part of World Space Week.

Thanks for the info and your space haiku, which is great. What I am impressed is that a haijin actually traveled space and wrote a haiku.

Well if the President of the European Union can write haiku, it's only right that the deep space ambassador writes too! ;-)
