Haiku on photo #5


INOUE, Seigetsu (1822?-1887) is a legendary bleaching haiku-poet in Japan.


'わらじwaraji' or straw sandal is old style Japanese sandal.


 This haiku is very simple and it says just only like ''They're 

strongly wet in the spring rain'', but we also can read his joy for the change of seasons from winter to spring.

 If he was caught in the rain or snow in winter, he and his feet couldn't stand in the cold. But now the spring has come and he didin't mind his feet to get wet. He might feel free to walk around outside, better than in winter

 So on this haiku,  we can imagine that he would find the joy of the spring to feel the moistness of straw sandals easily.

Haiku on photo #6


 Finding and watching on the first butterfly in the new green of the field. In Japan, モンシロチョウmonshiro-cho, or white small butterfly is very populer to see. 


 The contrast of the colours made his eyes sharp and clear, and the simple expression evokes to feel the new spark of vital energy silently, like awakening in the morning sun.
