cloud and fog!
lotuses are blooming
52 years old, On February the settlement of father's asset has been decided, he got his share. On April he marred with Kiku. On August went to Edo for preparation of retirement.
雲と霧 どいておくれよ 蓮の咲く
kumo to kiri doite okure yo hasuno saku
ummu mo sotchi noke to ya hasu no hana
similar type of haiku
chô tori mo sotchi noke to ya hasu [no] hana move aside
As my conclusion, the lotus didn’t mind cloud and fog,( or butterfly and bird)
That is Issa, haiku-poet always pay attention to the weather and the animals.
The lotus is his new wife “ Kiku “ who is gay and active
