Congratulations, New Issa site !
onedetou sai syupatu ya hotoke tomo
making a fresh start
For four months, Hurricane Katrina broke the web server at Xavier
University in New Orleans.
Dr. David Lanoue could not send Issa’s haiku to subscribers around the world.
Then I had to pick up Issa’s haiku from the book, Pure Land Haiku,
written by Dr. David.
I was lucky enough to study the religious ideas of Issa that lie hidden under his
seemingly childish poetry.
I must thank the hurricane for this.
I will back to the site” Haiku of Kobayashi Issa”
Congratulations, New Issa site, and please enjoy Issa’s image with us.
