The Cherry Blossom Murder

Haiku Thursday

My latest murder mystery revolves around haiku, so every week I’m publishing a classic Japanese haiku, illustrated with a woodblock print or painting from the British Museum collection. Today’s poem is by Masaoka Shiki.

A haiku is a short poem in three lines of five, seven and five syllables. I’ve kept to that in the translations.

It’s snowing outside
I can see it through a hole
