Haiku on photo #30

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


はらはらharahara is an onomatopoeia of Japanese to express the state of fluttering something thin. On this haiku, it expresses the movement of the leaves blown by the wind (some of them are falling) and fluttering wings of the migratory birds.


 At the change of seasons, it brings something new and take away something old. This haiku seems telling it with treating migratory birds from north country and falling leaves of trees symbolically. The nature scene in autumn calls unique sentimental feeling .

Haiku on photo #31

This simple haiku is known that Seigetsu wrote it when he was adapted to a family in the village of Ina as a member of it. Just before it, he was completely a drifter and had moved from town to town in the middle part of Japan. The detail of his life is unknown well until then.


It is said that he linkened himself to 'a fallen marron' and expressed his feeling of having direction home to stay. 'The hollow haunt' also seems to be linkened to the village of Ina, it is settled in a valley between 2 high mountain ridges.


But after it, he still used to wander around the village, begged food and sake from house to house and wrote haiku to thank for them. It was his style as a haiku poet.
