大根引き大根で道を教へけり
daiko hiki daikon de michi wo oshie keri

with the harvested radish,
he pointed at the way to go.

**


it's the season for harvesting the radish and issa was a newcomer who needed direction from a local who knows the way, but everyone was busy at their job of plucking out the their precious crop.

finally he found this farmer who had just successfully unearthed one of his radishes who would tell him the way by pointing with the radish he was holding in his hand.

this is indeed an expertly chosen snapshot of a farmer's life that shows the diligence in their work and the hospitality and kindness showed to a mere traveller.
it also conveys some feelings of uncertainty issa felt while he was on his journey, although the mood was tinted by his usual sense of humor.

i'm just a rather new haijin but the deviantART literary community had decided to bestow upon me the honor to represent "haiku and eastern poetry" in the projecteducate's week of poetry form.

an interview was conducted and posted in Beccalicious's journal:

PE: Interview with some dA haiku masters

anyway, i am no master of haiku ^^;
i am just the 'farmer' who had worked hard, and when you ask me the way, i will point the way to the best of my knowledge.
also, with the fruit of my labour: my collection of haiku in the gallery.

study of japanese language together with apprenticeship in haiku-writing is a long-standing hobby.

painting is another love of my life. i haven't been able to shake it off no matter how tied down by other affairs in real life.

traditional paintings were done using chinese ink on rice paper. i also do graphite and color pencil drawings, as well as digital art by photoshop 7.0.

see my other artwork at the default dA art account: :iconmoyan:

enjoy.
