Tea Haiku

Kobayashi Issa was a Japanese poet born in 1763. He wrote over 20,000 haiku - "one-breath poems" - that celebrate the small wonders of life, and wrote under the pen name "Issa," which means "Cup-of-Tea." He is regarded as one of the four haiku masters in Japan. 

Here is one of his poems with beautiful imagery:
making the lawn
a sit-down teahouse...
summer trees
