Koinobori Haiku Clouds
''蝶鳥の (chou tori no)
浮つき立つや (uwatsuki tatsu ya)
花の雲 (hana no kumo)''
''Birds and butterflies
Shake it up before taking off
Cloud of flowers''
Lemon yellow and traditional Japanese patterns combine elegantly to highlight this haiku. Did you know these Japanese poems before discovering this family of koinobori? The haiku evokes seasons through at least one word called kigo (季語, 季 ki = season, 語 go = word), this one undoubtedly depicts spring and instantly transports us to a flowery garden, an ideal playground for butterflies and birds. Two other koinobori complete the Haiku collection: Dew (size S) and Plum Tree (size M).
More about the koinobori
The koinobori, carp-shaped windsock, is a mythical object in Japan: it is the gift that we offer to little boys, and more and more to little girls, at the children's party (Kodomo No Hi) May 5th.
