yamabuki flowers…
i too
bear no fruit

 

Honoured to have the above haiku selected for the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery’s Masters of Japanese Prints collection. Each poem is inspired by a Japanese woodblock print from their 2018-2019 exhibition. Mine is for The Ide Jewel River, a Famous Place in Yamashiro Province, 1766–67 by Suzuki Harunobu (1725-70).

You can see the lovely print at the link below, as well as the other selections:
