#19 Iady Ise



Ise

Naniwa gata
Mijikaki ashi no
Fushi no ma mo
Awade kono yo o
Sugushite yo to ya


Lady Ise

Even for a time
Short as a piece of the reeds
In Naniwa's marsh,
We must never meet again:
Is this what you are asking me?


(comment)
Naniwa's marsh is a part of present osaka bay.

seems a sad request, never meeting again? Or just for a short time like reed is short?

Love the colors in kimono..what is this painted on, these round shapes? So lovely. I never saw this in Japan, I missed something special. I made a paper doll in Japan tho. Many women helped me. :)

Japanese people were gracious to me, I felt very welcome, will never forget Japanese hospitality.
