From Sanyo Shinbun (10月7日9時15分)

東北から北海道で大雨に 低気圧さらに発達し北上

 気象庁は7日、近畿から東北地方にかけての広い範囲で大雨をもたらした低気圧がさらに発達して北上するため、東北地方から北海道の広い範囲で大雨と暴風になるとして、引き続き警戒を呼びかけた。

 気象庁によると、8日朝までの24時間予想雨量は多いところで、東北太平洋側300ミリ、北海道オホーツク海側・太平洋側と東北日本海側200ミリ、北陸(新潟県)160ミリの見通し。北日本では1時間に50-30ミリの激しい雨が降るところもある。

 8日にかけて北日本では北または東の風が非常に強く吹き、東日本では西または北西の風が強く吹く。最大風速は海上で30-25メートル、陸上で25-20メートルで突風を伴うことが予想され、北日本や東日本の海上は大しけになり、北日本では猛烈にしける海域がある。

oh, mister moon !
you are racing so-o-o fast
through the rain clouds


(This haiku is dedicated to Robert Wilson and his Moon Haiku !)





It is full moon night, but the two typhoons, melting into one huge spider net, are covering most of Japan with clouds and strong winds.

Moon Viewing Party at the famous
Korakuen Park in Okayama



More than 4000 people attended a symphony concert in the park and enjoyed the moon between the fast moving clouds.
The photo reflects very well my above haiku of the moon on that night.

中秋の名月 岡山.後楽園で観賞会

「中秋の名月」の6日夜、岡山市の後楽園で名月観賞会が開かれた。秋雨前線の影響であいにくの空模様となったが、「月に群雲」の風情と、会場に響く箏曲の音色に約4000人が酔いしれた。

 延養亭では新岡山3曲研究会が箏曲「錦秋」「落ち葉する頃」など15曲を披露。闇が名園を包み込む中、雲の合間から時折、月が姿を現すと、訪れた家族連れから拍手がわき起こった。

Dear Gabi san,

Wishing you all protection from the threatening element! May it dissipate over the sea retaining peace at home!

Dancing Dragons-
clouds bow down
to kiss leaping waves

underneath, the city drifts

Hold on to your roof, Gabi san... May the dragons continue their
waltz over the seas!

Full Moon Haiku :

Auch noch vielen Dank fuer das Vollmondphoto mit den schwarzen Wolken in Korakuen aus der Zeitung -- beeindruckend!
Hier kommt der Vollmond
gerade hinter dem Kastanienbaum hervor -- noch 5 Minuten, und ich
sollte ihn sehen koennen.

5 Minuten spaeter :

full moon
rests on the chestnut tree
ready to rise


Isabelle

mid-autumn ...
the evening moon
in meditation

always
two sides to a coin
autumn moon

in the park
moon gathering
the poets

in the lake
sipping sake
the moon
