Kobayashi Issa

“Where there are humans,
You'll find flies,
And Buddhas.”
― Kobayashi Issa

“In the cherry blossom's shade
there's no such thing
as a stranger.”
― Kobayashi Issa

“Even in warmest
glow
how cold my shadow”
― Kobayashi Issa

“Reflected
in the dragonfly's eye --
mountains.”
― Kobayashi Issa

“All the time I pray to Buddha
I keep on
killing mosquitoes.”
― Kobayashi Issa
