Scroll artwork and poem written and created by Zoe Savina

in dedication to Lafcadio Hearn, Koizumi Yakumo, - to the plum trees - the other Odysseus

…and what will happen now?
for years I have tightly embraced Basho!
and just before, Issa,
but the friend –stubborn, turned the page for me…

written by the child who drew cats

afterwards he left
beyond the cherry trees
listening to the fluttering of the birds
