Easily glows
and easily goes
a firefly

 

Chine was the younger sister of Mukai Kyorai, the author of last week’s poem. Together the siblings kept a journal during a trip from Kyoto to the Ise shrine in 1686. Kyorai’s Ise Journal begins as follow:

 

The sun hot yet wind cool on our heads,
I take my younger sister on a pilgrimage to Ise.

(Chine’s reply)

Until Ise
such good companions,
morning geese

 

Chine died in 1688, at 26. The haiku of the week is Chine’s death poem.
