return to Nature

1826 Age 64

一茶
置露や我は草木にいつならん
oku tsuyu ya ware wa kusaki ni itsu naran

David’s English
dewdrops forming--
when might I become
grass...or a tree?


sakuo Renku
自然に戻る時ぞ近づく
shizen ni modoru toki zo tikaduku

returning to Nature
the time come up

re dewdrops falling; there is a nice meditative quality about ths piece, the figure in the distance leaving behind the days events, musing on the dewdrops and questioning quietly to himself communing with, in touch with his environment.


Much Love

Sakuo san,
this is now one of my favorites!
I have enjoyed seeing your latest

I am short of time, but will drop
by when I can.
