Japan in Photos and Haiku

my only citrus
this morning — high, bright orange
in cold cloudless blue


Jacqueline Pearce, children’s book author, of Wild Ink blog has a lovely post of photos and haiku about an exhibit at Sawa Tea Lounge and Gallery.  She (haiku) and her friend Jean-Pierre Antonio (photos) collaborated on this exhibit of Japan.  It felt like an early spring gift to me.  Make a cup of tea, click on the link, and enjoy.

      You leave the best comments. Thank you for the analysis. I love reading what someone else sees in my poem, seeing if it matches my own intentions or discovers more. You have a good one too.

      I enjoyed my visit to your site. Thank you for visiting and commenting on the haiku. Hope to see you again. By the way, I love the name of your blog. 🙂

  11. Thanks, Yousei! I love it when someone responds to haiku with haiku. Kind of feels like one of those poetry parties aristocrats used to participate in old Japan…
