蝶一羽 群れより離れ 拗ねてるか

chô hitotsu nakama nukeshite suneru ka yo

sakuo remark
To personalize is Issa’s favorite . He overlapped himself on the butterfly parting from the crowd.
Was he sad a little at that time?

you have a wonderful blog here that i frequently visit.

keep up the great work!

can i use your images on my blog? i will only source it from your blog and not upload a copy of it for myself, thus implicitly giving you credit.

i'll assume you have no objections until i hear from you, upon which i will promptly take it down.
