Spring Is Almost Here

This is a great haiku poem I read though the 72 Seasons app, which I reviewed previously.

地の底に Chi no soko ni
在るもろもろや Aru moro moro ya
春を待つ Haru wo matsu

“All manner of things beneath the ground wait for spring.”

Matsumoto Takashi,
poem published in 1935

According to the app, Matsumoto Takashi (1906-1956) started life in a family of Noh theater actors but had to give it up due to ill-health. He began composing haiku around the age of 15 and became a magazine publisher and editor by 1946.
