New Years god shelf

Issa Original

1821 Issa was 59 years old.
He already has lost a daughter and two sons.

David's comment
This comic haiku refers to the New Year's custom of visiting a shrine or temple located in a lucky direction. The cat takes aim at the toshi-Dana (New Year's shelf), where offerings to the god have been placed.
