    haiku

    when originally trained in martial arts so many years ago we were expected to also learn sumi, ikebana, ocha, haiku. Wrote this for a friend, hope you like it. Classical kaiku is quite demanding structure wise though short

      I always enjoy your art, your pictures and now this.

      Apropos of nothing, have you read Ooka Shohei's Fires on the Plain? It's a book that I find myself rereading with new eyes every few years.

        I love haiku, but am more familiar with English haiku than Japanese. Here is one I wrote many years ago:
        Sun on verdant grass
        Fingers tangle deeply weave
        Frantic ants run out
        (KLD)
