Chiyo-Ni: Woman Haiku Master

by Patricia Donegan
     
 
Chiyo-Ni (1703-1775) was one of the few great female poets in an age when haiku was dominated by men. As a Buddhist nun, painter and poet, she lived a life of supreme independence and aesthetic sensibility and in the process created haiku embodying Zen-like simplicity and female sensuality.
