It's not often that the contemporary haiku can look as good as Issa's haikai verses, and their translations, but these do really well.

Ah, morning light, and exposing the cracks both, possibly in their paintwork of the apartment, but mostly within themselves. Ouch!

Mackerel clouds (great kigo) and the fishing line hooking a ripple. Wonderful scene set out for us.

And the fishing boat mingling with the larks is sheer beauty and light humor.

A great banquet of verses.

Thanks, Alan ... so nice when everything comes together on the page ... and in the mind.


Rehn said...

Thank you for the wonderful image. You are so good at choosing images that speak to the poem. And thank you Alan for your comments.
