Carpe Diem #1158 Kashiwabara, birth-place of Kobayashi Issa

1810
むさい家との給ふやうな雛哉
musai ya to no tamau yôna hiina kana

looking like she’s enduring
my crappy house…
the doll                       Issa

1804
を踏こたへたりみそさざい
yama kaze wo fumi kotaetari misosazai

fighting the mountain wind
on foot…
a wren                         Issa

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

lonely storehouse
in a mountain village
a cup of tea

afternoon shadows
dance upon the walls
Issa’s spirit free
