Taking Shelter









taking shelter
in the Buddha's light -
a dove in the morning






Zuflucht suchen
in Buddha's Licht -
eine Taube am Morgen



灯篭の灯りに隠れし鳩一羽

typhoon -
in the folds of my robe
a bee hiding


Typhoon is a kigo for mid-autumn.

.. .. .. Issa writes about this subject of taking refuge in the Buddha too.


baby sparrow
safe in Saint Jizo's
sleeve


I wrote an explanation about the sheltering sleeve of Jizoo Bosatsu .


..........................................

kawahori ya Nioo no ude ni burasagari



from the arm
of the Deva King
bats dangle



.........................................



no-botoke no sode ni kakurete kiji no naku





hiding in the stone
Buddha's sleeve
a pheasant cries



Haiga by Sakuo Nakamura

堂鳩や 仏日傘で 羽休め
(doobato ya hotoke-higasa de hane yasume)

季語:日傘
堂鳩:これから「ドバト(土鳩)」となったようです。

私も一茶だい好き!(あまり俳句は知らないけれど)

ガビさんの俳画も見てみたいなぁ。^^

on Buddha's belly
a yawning old tomcat
the unpleasant smell
