without trembling


Akikaze ya hyoro hyoro yama no  kageboshi


The autumn wind!

Even the mountain's shadow

Trembles before it. 


~ Issa, translated by Lewis Mackenzie



Yes, but this day is still, quiet

but for a scattering of birds

seeking dogwood and hackberry seeds ~


 a treat before snow?

Yeah! to chance upon a treat on a quiet day.
An offering by nature itself!
How very heartwarming,indeed.

Lovely, although by nature birds appear as one with the wind, how ever is one to resist an irresistible hackberry seed~
