— and from otata’s bookshelf —

David Miller — From Late to Early


Otata will come again
one day
late fall in the mountains

— Santoka as translated by Burton Watson

Otata mo aru hi wa kite kureru yama no aki fukaku

As Watson notes, “Otata was a woman who went around selling fish in the area of Santoka’s cottage in Matsuyama.”

    And here also the new issue of Otata!
    Many thanks to the editor John Martone for choosing three of my haiku. it’s an honor for me.
    Post them below:

    snowy beach –
    the thoughts wreck
    in this white

    snowy night –
    a silent song
    inside and out

    crescent moon –
    between snow butterflies
    bamboo dances

    Congratulations to my friends Angiola Inglese, Marina Bellini, Maria Laura Mamiya Valente and Christina Sng.
