A March Haiku

With the beginning of the new month comes an introduction to another word artist – Shiki.  Unfortunately, I was unable to find any verifiable biographical information about him, as the name Shiki appeared in reference to several different haiku authors.  However, I believe his beautiful words speak for themselves.

“Islands all around
with their pine trees; and the wind–
its sound is cooling.”

–Shiki (1867-1902)
