You sleep well !

David's English
softly snoring--
the cat curled up
on the fan

-Issa, 1815
53 years old. On last year he has got his father's asset and married with Kiku.September he went to Edo for publishing his poem book. And being to Bosyu for visiting his haiku friends, coming back to his village on December

zu-zu to neko no ne-korobu ougi kana

sakuo remark
[ougi] is not a fan for making wind but for ornament and tool for dance and drama .
Whose fan is it ?
It is a lady's fan who is sleeping deeply.
Silent and hot summer afternoon it is.
