haiku

 

nokishita to iu fuyu o matsu tokoro kana

            under the eaves…

            a place where one waits

            for winter

                                                - Shu Mayuzumi

from Haiku Dai-Saijiki (Comprehensive Haiku Saijiki), Kadokawa Shoten, Tokyo, 2006.

A couple of years ago, I began exploring haiku as a writing form - and fell in love.
