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.
