Haiku by Yosa Buson. Artwork by myself. Today in Japan is "Risshun", meaning the first spring day. In the other Asian countries, they celebrated the new year yesterday. Though there are news of heavy snow, Spring is definitely coming soon.
Now that ume blossoms are in full bloom, Buson is so thrilled, like the bird in the haiga, that he just cannot decide which ume to go admire.
