Wase (early rice)

Wase (early rice)

Carpe Diem Time Machine #16

inekareba ogusani akino hino ataru

harvesting the rice–
upon small grasses
falls the autumn sun.

Buson

………………………………………

michi no ku no taue mite kara kaeru kari

after seeing rice planting
in remote provinces…
the geese depart

Issa

autumn sunlight
falls on the gleaned fields
workers full of song

~~~

early rice flowers
fragrance fills the air
I long for home
