Autumn Haiku by Bonchō

17 Oct

Clouds going above

and coming below-

autumn sky

–  Bonchō

(Translated by  Hoshino Tsunehiko and Adrian Pinnington)

Sky

上行くと下来る雲や秋の空

凡兆

ue yuku to shita kuru kumo ya aki no sora

The autumn sky is deep and clear, but the clouds don’t go away.  Fall is a typhoon season in Japan.  The sky can look beautiful, but the weather is changeable.

I offer my condolences to those who have been affected by Typoon Wipha.
