PART ONE

 

Susumu Takiguchi is an artist, poet and essayist as well as a haijin. He has shown his paintings in a series of one-man exhibitions held every year since 2006 in Sasebo and Nagasaki, Japan. One such show contained a group of drawings of eminent Japanese haiku poets in pencil, felt-tip pen and charcoal from Shiki Masaoka to Masajo Suzuki.  Beginning with this issue, World Haiku Review will be showing some of these works in three instalments.
