INVITATION TO THE WORKS OF KYOSHI
Seasonal word: kareno, withered field(winter).
This is one of Kyoshi's most famous masterpieces. It is considerd as a pivotal piece in which he established the haiku world of his own.
This haiku deeply moves all who read it. Why this heartfelt reactions? Perhaps it is becase the scene is so plainly described. We, the readers, can clealy visualize what Kyoshi saw , and superimpose this image over our own memories.
The sun-lit mountains at the end of the bleak winter field may give hope and comfort to us, who are all travelers of life.
