Shiki Haikusphere

Post date: Jan 10, 2015 12:20:13 AM

A new addition to the Haiku and Senryu page is “Shiki Haikusphere,” a collection of ten haiku from the anthology of the same name, published in Matsuyama, Japan in 2007. My presentation of these poems includes the book’s Japanese translations by Kimiyo Tanaka. You can also read William J. Higginson’s commentary on the first of these ten poems, a poem that parodies one of Shiki’s most famous haiku.
