hototogisu kataku no hito wo warauran
laughing at the man
in the burning house?
In this haiku, Issa was cuckoo and himself who
watch the man in the burning house who has lived
with all his effort.
The man lives with out knowing his future’s death
and desires all happiness on the earth.
Such a man is called “a man in burning house”
The man, Issa and cuckoo, they are all same to be die.
So only praying Amida can help them forever.
