I really enjoy reading your blog.

My favourite haiku by Issa:

「行な雁どっこも茨のうき世ぞや」

"The migration of geese is futile; they cannot escape this transient world"

Thank you for coming and post comment.
Pardon me to ask you question about your name " クmaコuジ ”.
It is very uniqe but hard to read and write.
