Haiku: Japanese Art and Poetry 2023 Wall Calendar

$15.99 $9.59 Sale

Published with: the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria

The roots of Japanese haiku reach back over a thousand years. In this poetic form, as in life, there is a pause, a shift, in which the poet celebrates sensory awareness of the season, perhaps suggested by the scent of plum blossoms or the silence of snow-covered tree limbs. The timeless appeal of this understated poetry may be the human desire to capture one’s impressions of a fleeting moment. Such seasonal allusions emphasize the essence of haiku: nature and its ephemeral beauty. This calendar features 12 haiku paired with reproductions of exquisite Japanese woodcuts. Each poem is rendered in Japanese calligraphy, Romaji transliteration, and English translation.

Immediately when I saw Haiku and Japanese Art I ordered. Two of my favorite art forms, as at one point I wrote haiku and collected Japanese art, mainly dolls.
Thank you for the variety of art you offer, love all.
