empty babble

Issa Original
tarai kara tarai ni uturu chinpunkan

David’s English
from tub to tub…
empty babble

This is said to be Issa’s last haiku.
[chinpunkan] is curious word. It means 
[not understandable ] or [don’t know]
The first tub is a tub for baby that means birth.
The second tub is used for wash the body of the dead.
There is our whole life between two tubs.
He may wished to say
his whole life is not well understandable.
