A collection of haiku based off of traditional woodblock art.


Kinokunizaka in the Rainy Season



Seeking shelter -

Rain patters off the hat

Of a fleeing woman


Miyajima in Autumn



Gate leading nowhere

Standing vigil for fishermen -

In the autumn storm

Steadfastly -

A tree patiently waits for ships

Coming to harbor

Pine Tree in Fall

Fishermen return --

Their ships darkened with rain

Ready to sell their catch

Rain at Shinagawa, Tokyo

The Great Wave off Kanagawa

Fishermen working -

Their ships flooded suddenly

By an immense wave
