Old Poem Saturday – Haiku by Issa

Saturdays have been dominated by epigrams recently (which are perfect bite-sized bits of poetry for the weekend, I reckon) – so I decided to spice it up and throw in another type of slim verse, the haiku. “Don’t worry spiders” is by Kobayashi Issa (1763-1827), known as one of the “Three Masters” of haiku and was translated by Robert Haas. Photograph and composition by me. Have a great weekend!

  1. Why is the idea of accommodating spiders so cute and whimsical? 🙂 Perfect creepy picture for this one.
