Matsushima--from yonder isleanother lark
56 years old, stay in Sinano. first daughter was born on May.
matusima ya mukouno sima yori mata hibari
matusima ya achi no matsu kara mata hibari
This haiku is comical, ironical and contains a little cheap joke.
Issa ,of couse, did critical thinking on Basho 's Matusima.
I feel in this haiku Issa's self-confidence at this time.
Good haiku, I love it.
