Haiku on rain shutter

33 years old on his journy to West district.

ume no tsuki ichi mai no kosu amado kana

David’s English
for the plum blossom moon
I remove
a rain shutter

David’s Comment 
Issa wrote this during his journey to Shikoku Island. It was inspired by a walk that he took on the shore of the Inland Sea, as he thought longingly about the olden days of haiku.

sakuo Renku
ume to tuki ikani haikuni kiritoran

plum and moon
how make them haiku
placing the frame
