Updated Issa

posted Dec 26, 2011, 10:09 PM by Michael Dylan Welch
I’ve updated my “For the Love of Issa” essay on the Essays page by adding the text for each poem in Japanese, along with minor revisions to the romaji and a note about crickets versus katydids. Issa is known to have written at least 20,000 haiku in his lifetime. I don’t know how many I’ve written, but I’d estimate somewhere around 9,000. That’s probably a high estimate, so I have a long way to go to catch Issa! How about you?
