A Haiku [Healing by Swaying] September 11  2011

The night ten years after 9-11 and a half year after the 3-11 tsunami of Japan was with a large clear moon here in WA. I was watching the orange moon above tall trees, thinking of those spirits who left their bodies in the disasters. A couple of cats came and joined me....


The original EL haiku and the English and Japanese translations by hoo

The full moon _
my tail is gently swaying too
with black and gray cats

満月や ネコの尾ゆれる わが尾もゆれる
