Ono no Komachi


Ono no Komachi - Best Japanese female poet

Her poetry blooms
Like first spring cherry blossom
when read by the eyes
Name Ono no Komachi
Greatest WAKA queen
Now synonym of beauty
For female in new Japan

Buddhist priest poet
Great Kobayashi Issa
A very close friend
Of the snails,frogs and fireflies
Left his soul in words
For Japanese poetry
To blossoms as the Haiku
