    In his last years, writing and eating fruit were the only pleasures in his sick bed.
    He was tortured by pain, but when morphine could mask the main, he enjoyed painting, too.
    While the death was closing to Shiki, he composed a haiku on a cicada.

    a late summer cicada
    at the top of his voice
    chirping, and chirping.......

    The image of the life of the cicada overlaps his fate close to death.

Haiku 01

In the coolness
of the empty sixth-month sky...
the cuckoo's cry.

Read the full of Haiku 01

Tanka 03

The man
I used to meet in the mirror
is no more.
Now I see a wasted face.
It dribbles tears.
