Kimono shapes and patterns are coupled with Basho haiku. Here are some on the surfaces of these pieces:
Redly, redly
The sun shines heartlessly, but
The wind is autumnal

Spring is passing by!
Birds are weeping and the eyes
Of fish fill with tears

I scribbled something,
Planning to tear up my fan—
But parting was sad.
