Toji (冬至)
Winter solstice

In the longest night, when the circle of the sun closes once more, a new circle is born, which Father Time and Mother Nature walk through together. In the four quarters, 52 small moments and thoughts are recorded in the form of haiku.

Loosely in the form of the Japanese haiku poetry in 5-7-5 syllables and partly covered with pictures, these seasonal three-line lines are supplemented with short poems in the style of the haiku or senryu poetry that are not linked to the seasons. These in turn cover a broad spectrum of topics, roughly sorted.

The collection closes with translations, with tanka and a handful of unordered poems.
