ABOUT THE COVER

VOLUME 1, ISSUE 1

World Haiku Review

The brush and water-colour drawing on the front cover design is a “mosha” (copy) by Susumu Takiguchi after an ink and colour drawing by Takebe Socho (1761-1814) from the month of December of his “Screens of the Twelve Months” in Masuda Shozaburo Collection, Tokyo. The calligraphy on the drawing says “mosha”. The haiku poem which accompanies the original drawing goes:

koyuki seyo
kasa kite mawan
kami no mae

Let the light snow fall
I’ll dance with my sedge hat
in front of the god
