"070524 accusing the pine" on Google Video

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4238314363568064418&hl=en

1809, age 47, Issa lived in Edo.
This is the first attempt of musical haiku with sounds and pictures.
The music is played by Issui Mimegishi with monochord Koto that is
the oldest koto, accompanying traditional poem, Japanese waka.

I write one idea of mine down here:

Mr Pine, neither you
have a home in this chilly
evening mist?


(There is not any accusing left?
But Issa was not actually accusing so strongly anyone, but his strong friend, Mr Pine?)

tikkis san
thank you for your kind compliment.
Mr Pine(real name is matui)was always kindly taking good care for Issa.
He lived 2~3kilo meter far from Issa's lental house. So he could possibly checke the house.
In Edo city,goveament had sivire controll for the residents,so homeless people was very hard to survives.
