Haiku on photo #9

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

 

 He was resting his tired body in the shadow of young leaves. 

 

 Seigetsu wrote some haiku about the feeling that he felt at his journey. Half a lifetime of his is shrouded in mystery but one thing we can know is that he had traveled(wandered) around the  middle part of Japan before he arrived at Ina.

 

 We can't follow the tracks of his journey clearly but his haiku works tell the feelings then he got still vividly. 

 

The leaves on the picture are Japanese horse-chestnuts. They grow so big momentarily at the begenning of summer.

Haiku on photo #10

 What kind of colour do you imagine when you hear ''the colour of the wind''? Maybe the blue of the sky, or glittering greens of waving leaves, you can imagine any colours as you like.

 From the vallry of Ina, people still can see the snowed moutains at the beginning of summer. Those summits reach to about 3,000m high, so the snow in last winter is still remaining on them.

 Seigetsu would see the greens of plains and snowed mountain at same time and might felt something in the wind.
