Description

Beautiful small poems on small cards.... Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828) is beloved world-wide for his sensitive haiku. This mini collection of four poems includes one haiku each for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. The poems were translated by poet and scholar Dr. David G. Lanoue, used with permission.


the mountain sunset
within my grasp ...
spring butterfly

summer mountain -
with each step more
of the sea

from leaf to leaf
tumbling down ...
autumn dew

first winter rain
the world fills up
with haiku


The haiku were lettered in a simple italic hand using a slanted nib, printed in brown-black on a portion of an 1885 Rand Mcnally & Co. Map of the World, which I color-adjusted digitally to suggest each particular season. The map section includes Japan. The designs were commercially printed on cardstock (Green Seal™ Certified/Sustainable Forest Initiative, according to printer) with a glossy front and matte back. Packaged in a silvery-gray organza gift bag.

Perfect to tuck into a greeting card, Valentine, or for Poem in Your Pocket Day!

Great gift for haiku lovers.
