the sliding door’s

decorative pattern…

fly shit

– Haiku by Kobayashi Issa (tr. David G. Lanoue), haiku-comic by Old Pond Comics

while I’m away (haiku by Issa)

Last week, Bee Jay asked me if I’ve ever illustrated the “fly lovemaking” haiku by Issa. No, I haven’t. But I love a challenge!

Thirty minutes after she asked me that question on the Virtual Haiku group on Facebook, I posted the following comic:
