Great haiku, received from the Japaneskoj list on 5 Jan 2005... I locked it in my email client to prevent accidental deletion, but hadn't figured out what to do with it, so it sat there at the top of the window for a while, and every time I opened that folder I saw it and thought, yeah, that's a great haiku, what am I gonna do with it?...

A few months later I made this page and linked it on my haiku page...

The haiku came to mind from time to time but I forgot about this page, until I stumbled across it seven years later while updating a nearby page...

kesa aki ya
miiru kagami ni
oya no kao...

Kijo Murakami (1865-1938)

Aŭtuna tago;
el spegul' min rigardas
patra vizaĝo...

— tradukis Leonego

aŭtuna maten.
vizaĝ de mia patro
en la spegulo.

— tradukis Ailanto

autumn morning.
my father's face
in the mirror.
