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!
