Wordy Wednesday – “Don’t Worry, Spiders” by Kobayashi Issa

I love this poem because it’s so minimalist while still packing a lot into the meaning.

Here it is:

Don’t worry, spiders,
I keep house

Issa’s haiku’s are very easy to get into – I suggest you check them out. He wrote thousands of them, and I like to browse them using this random Issa haiku page. There are sometimes helpful clarifications at the bottom.
