Old Poem Saturday – Haiku by Buson


A haiku for Old Poem Saturday – this one is by the haiku master Taniguchi Buson (1716-1783) and was translated by Robert Hass. Drawing (ink on paper) and composition by me. This was an early attempt of mine with drawing ink and if this medium teaches you nothing else, it is to celebrate your mistakes and accept spontaneity! Have a lovely weekend!
