The Emptiness of My Mosquito Net

This piece was written in response to Naviarhaiku324 – sleeping, waking

     sleeping, waking
     the emptiness
     of my mosquito net

This haiku is by Chiyo-ni. Born in the Ishikawa Prefecture in 1703, she began writing haiku poetry when she was 6, and her ability was soon recognized even though haiku by women were often dismissed and ignored at that time. Chiyo-ni was strongly influenced by Basho’s poetry (probably because her teachers were his students), but developed her own unique style.

The Emptiness of My Mosquito Net was written for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Violin, Viola and Cello.
