Sho-e: Haiku – A tribute to Master Basho


By using only letters of word H.A.I.K.U I paint here the most famous poem of Master Basho. Hope you could hear the sound of water splash.


Fu-ru (old) i-ke (pond) ya,
ka-wa-zu (frog) to-bi-ko-mu (jumping into)
mi-zu (water) no o-to (sound)

The old pond-
a frog jumps in,
sound of water
(Translated by Fumiko Saisho)
