forest of temple

David’s English
three dewdrops--
Ueno's cicadas
break out into song

Issa, 1812

一茶
露三粒上野の蝉の鳴出しぬ
tsuyu mi tsubu ueno no semi no nakidashinu

sakuo Renku
成仏願い寺の森行く
jyou-butu negai tera no mori yuku

pray becoming Buddha
go through the forest of temples

three dewdrops
is
a beautiful poem.

gale warning
three gulls surf the waves
above the lake


hummingbirds...
we decide to go
our separate ways


first time on the river
i fish the spot
the heron fished

This one speaks to me. We have many cicadas here. I hear them every day and night! It's starting to get cool, though, so their voice will go away.

andrew san,thank you for your comment.

I visited your Van Baren, starting from New Orleans where David sensei lives.
I don't know where your twon is.
I opened Google map, then I went up along Mississippi river.
At Memphis I turned to left and reached at Arkansas's city, Little Rock.
The more forward going, Your Van Buren is appeared.
It is done on map as well as on sky map.
It takes 10 minute , but how long does it take by car?
