Issa 一茶

waku shimizu asama no keburi mata miyuru

David’s English
gushing pure water--
Mount Asama's smoke
appears again

sakuo comment
Volcano、Mount Asama has erupted 20 years before. That has brought big damage.
Mount’s smoke is the symbol of anxiety, as well as spring is of fresh hope.
Issa would feel please and courage to joint new group of Natsume.

basho ha nogare natume ha ni yoru
