Three from Yosa Buson … and painting…

from an essay, “Yosa Buson, Haiku Master” [Kyoto Journal] by Edward McFadden … art by Yosa Buson

 
 
 
The shimmering heat
…soil in a wicker basket
someone dear

 
 
 

                            Breaking off a plum branch
                            grumbling about his wrinkled hand —
                            Ah, the fragrance!

Landscape with Houses by Yosa Buson

Landscape with Houses by Yosa Buson

 
 
 

Enduring the stillness,
the crystalline waters . . .
A snail!
