now I watch


Issa 一茶1813 age 51

now I watch
with careful attention...
autumn dusk

ima ni natte nen irite miru aki no kure

今に成って念入て見る秋の暮

translated by Dr. David http://cat.xula.edu/issa/

Sakuo note; 1813, Age 51

In autumn Issa’s inheritance dispute finally settled, he moves into his family home. It has passed 12 years since his father’s died.

Father’s asset was divided half and half between the brothers.

__Today, I watch all things that >I do< with very careful and close attention; it seems no matter what >I do<... I always disturb someone elses special interests.

interesting haiga; bringing the poet Issa to the forefront, emphasises the completion and concentration to his future that is expressed in the haiku

much love
