roku do^ no tsuji ni tachi keri kare obana
standing at a six-way
in the withered grass
by Issa, 1819
This haiku alludes to the "Six Ways" of possible future life reincarnation: 輪廻（りんね）（転生） (1) as a sufferer in hell, (2) as a hungry ghost, (3) as an animal, (4) as an angry demon, (5) as a human being, or (6) as a saint in the Western Paradise.
