Autumn Mosquitoes

Under the Willow

autumn mosquitoes
buzz me, bite me.... see, I am
long prepared for death

Separated by many years and thousands of miles, I still find the humour of Shiki to be very close to my own. I especially appreciate the Zen overtones in this particular haiku.

The haiga is completed by an appropriately autumnal photograph from my own garden.
