Haiku on photo #23

INOUE, Seigetsu (1822?-1887) is a legendary bleaching haiku-poet in Japan.

 

This haiku is a sort of old fashoned romance.

 

In a autamn morning, he would see a couple of humble lovers on a path which was lush grasses with dews.

They would dodge not only dews on the grasses but also touching each other. Touching body outside is ill-mannerd habit in Japan, now it's not so much but it was more strict manner in old time.

 

Through this haiku, we can see the shyness and humble behavior of them, with amorous metaphor.

Haiku on photo #24

This haiku was written for  the celemony of 月見tsukimi, moon-gazing.

 

On 15th August of Chinese luna calendar (a day in the beggining of September of the Gregorian calendar), we gaze at the moon to admire as an autamn custom. It is comes from ancient China and will be in common for East Asian countries.

 

At the time he wrote this haiku, some people would gathered from far places for it. Not only them, Seigetsu would also do and remember the memories of his long journey he had walked through before at the moon-gazing.

 

And the moon shed  the light over the hills, rivers and all around the world. No matter where you are.
