This is lovely. I'm reminded of a particular favorite by Masaoka Shiki. He too would have approved!
Thank you for this reference. I haven't read much of his work but just now read a few and found this one very appealing: The wild geese take flightLow along the railroad tracksIn the moonlight night I'll do further reading. I like his realistic approach to haiku. Thanks, Geo!
A lot of irony here. I see it from a unique viewpoint. My older brother suffered severe and life ending injuries in the battle of Iwo Jima. I do not enjoy that opera.
I understand ... connecting threads through time, as the opera was written and premiered in 1903, as Madama Butterfly. It's more modern setting has included these ironies.
