Spring Rain

Today is a pleasant spring day in Miyazaki, a lush green city of rivers, streams and ponds by the ocean.

Beautiful hydrangeas are in bloom, and gentle, warm rain has been falling all day. Here is a famous haiku poem by Yosa no Buson (1716 – 1784).

Spring rain.. The pond and the river.. Have become one (Yosa no Buson, 1716 – 1784)

池と川ひとつになりぬ春の雨

spring rain
the pond and the river
have become one

In Japanese:

Ike to kawa
hitotsu ni narinu
haru no ame
