Floral Capital

Issa Original 1792, age 30.
yuku haru no machi ya kasa uri sudare uri

David’s English
spring ends in the town--
umbrella-hat, bamboo blind

sakuo comment
Issa has started from Edo to Western province on the third month of 1792.
Via Toukaido, he has been to Kyoto and Osaka that are formal metropolis and the center of economy.
This haiku would be made in those cities.

sakuo Renku.
summer is coming
to the floral Capital
