WORLD-WIDE WHC SHIKI HAIKU POEMS CONTEST  2001

 

Second Place: an’ya  


blood moon
cuckoo’s voice in the back
of his throat

this draws inspiration from Shiki’s 5th grade poem , “cuckoo cries as if it coughed up blood” and how he actually wrote of his own later health problems.

Other Excellent Poems

last homecoming
eleven autumn leaves part
from their maple

Regarding Shiki’s last homecoming/farewell party, and his last works in Matsuyama; autumn leaves being his colleagues, and Shiki himself, the tree.
