nakanakani

なかなかに人と生れて秋の暮
naka-naka ni hito to umarete aki no kure

quite remarkable / being born human… / autumn dusk
just so-so / being born human… / autumn dusk
(two translations by David G. Lanoue)

born human, / I’m able to feel it — / autumn twilight (translated by Chris Drake)

Inspired by Issa’s haiku. Completed June 9, 2020.
