These are great! Too bad there aren't more of them. Every single one conveys a distinct and vibrant image with almost no information. Some are sad, some are gorgeous, but most are actually quite funny. The translators did a good job conveying the "cutting" of the haiku.

Kobayashi Issa was a Japanese poet known for his haiku poems and journals. He is regarded as one of the four haiku masters in Japan, along with Bashō, Buson and Shiki. Reflecting the popularity and interest in Issa as man and poet, Japanese books on Issa outnumber those on Buson, and almost equal those on Bashō.
