ISSA and SUMIRE

#Issa #sumire #haiku

TWO HAIKU ABOUT SUMIRE BY ISSA

Sumire saku / kado ya yoru sae / natsukashiki

Violet bloom gate ! night yearning longing sae = clear at least serene ? natsukashiki yearn long for as adjective

Violets blooming serenely by the gate at night I yearn to see 

Or possilbly its late twilight and hes pleased to reach his destination ?

Waga mae ni / dare dare sumi shi / sumire zo mo

I before this time place who who live indeed violets emphatic also still here


Before me  who indeed lived here the violets still remain 


December theme will be Summer and Heat !
With a few Wintery things thrown in for contrast!
