More in the Hokusai series!




The Emperor praised

the eight-fold branch of blossom.

Next time we’ll bring trees!




When the rooster crowed,

you said that you had to leave.

I’ve heard that before.




Maskao – why you?

You turned celibate and then

told the guard, not me.





you are bound to catch a fish,

if you are patient.


No Number 66




My heart on my sleeve;

tears are on display, but see –

no one really cares.




We shared a pillow,

but nothing happened- really!

People are gossips.




At night, all is gloom;

everything seems much worse,

bathed in soft moonlight.




Maple leaves in streams

may look beautiful, but we

have our work to do.




Ordinary life

goes on in every season-

even in Autumn.
