This substantial choral work was completed in 1970. Its succinct and atmospheric text is based on haiku poetry by Basho and other Japanese poets, in the original and in English translation. Musically it takes the form of a theme and variations with interludes, and looks forward towards the choral style and content of Heininen's Japanese opera, The Damask Drum.
