This dark piece of Japanese Haiku art has a suminagashi background, a Japanese technique which produces unique results. The words read ‘’Winter Solitude, in a world of one colour the sound of the wind”. By Matsuo Basho. Written by hand with a tiny dip pen in Chinese ink.

This could be an ideal gift for someone who loves poetry, or someone who finds calm in a still environment or as an aid to mindfulness in a quiet space. Perhaps chosen for a special anniversary or birthday or simply a gift for someone who loves Matsuo Basho.

Interesting Information about this poem

  • One of the four great masters of Japanese haiku, Matsuo Bashō is known for his simplistic yet thought-provoking haikus.
  • One day in the spring of 1681 a banana tree was being planted alongside a modest hut in a rustic area of Edo, a city now known as Tokyo. It was a gift from a local resident to his teacher of poetry, who had moved into the hut several months earlier.
  • The teacher, a man of thirty-six years of age, was delighted with the gift. He loved the banana plant because it was somewhat like him in the way it stood there. Its large leaves were soft and sensitive and were easily torn when gusty winds blew from the sea. Its flowers were small and unobtrusive; they looked lonesome, as if they knew they could bear no fruit in the cool climate of Japan. Its stalks were long and fresh- looking.
