Haiku on photo #7


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


 Lily blossoms grow too big to support its own proportion and the stem is bended for their weight in this blooming season.

 This haiku expresses such vigorous appearance of them humorously and tells us that it becomes animated fine season for creatures, from spring to summer.


 *五月百合Satsuki-yuri: ''Satsuki'' means May in old Japanese and ''yuri'' means lily. On this translation, I take its meaning as general lily flowers in May, not typical botanic group. But sometimes Satsuki-yuri can be the other name of Sasa-yuri(Lilium Japonicum), it blooms different flowers from this picture.
