Haiku: Japanese Art and Poetry, 2012
The traditional Japanese haiku contains seventeen sound characters, a seasonal reference, and a distinct pause or interruption. The seasonal allusion emphasizes the essence of haiku: nature and its ephemeral beauty. The twelve deceptively simple haiku featured in this calendarrendered in English with Japanese calligraphies and transliterationsare from Pomegranates book Haiku: Japanese Art and Poetry, by Judith Patt, Michiko Warkentyne, and Barry Till. The poems are paired with ukiyo-e prints and shin hanga woodcuts. With their depth and delicacy, these artworkslike their haiku counterpartsquietly capture a moment in time.
