old pine tree
furu matsu ya waga mi no aki ga me ni miyuru
my own life's autumn
fills my eyes
be leaved be hated
and be suspected
Issa sees in the old pine(s) a reflection of his own aging self. In another version of this haiku, he ends with ano tôri ("is like that").
1810, Age 48.
Negotiations over his inheritance take place.
on May, back to native village for the negotiation, but failed .
on June , visiting the grave of Kakyo, his femal student whom he would love.
on November, being involved in money trouble with Natume,who was his teacher and sponcer, injured very much.
