the nightingale’s song –
it stops what I am doing
at the kitchen sing
Chigetsu Kawai

Buddhist statue hides –
mosquitoes during the daytime
behind his back
Issa Kobayashi

my running nose –
remains red even after nightfall
only the tip of it
Ryunosuke Akutagawa

the first dream of the year –
I keep it as a secret
and smiled to myself
Syou Sakaurai
