The morning sun
Rises above the frosty woods.
-Ilida Darotsu

In the twilight gloom
Of the redwood and the pine
Some wisterias bloom.

Red dragonflies
Flowing like a ripple
Toward the crimson sky.
-Miura Yuzuru

A whale!
Down it goes, and more and more
up goes its tail!

Buson, Yosa. (1716-84)

No sky
no earth – but still
snowflakes fall


An old silent pond…

A frog jumps into the pond,

splash! Silence again.

by Basho (1644-1694)

Over the wintry

forest, winds howl in rage

with no leaves to blow.

by Soseki (1275-1351)
