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?

Sona
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~
