Waterfalls of Osaka

crystal droplets bounce
orchestra of waterfalls
releases rainbows

Kim M. Russell, 2017

Kema-cho, Osaka Prefecture in autumn and a waterfall somewhere around Kema-cho

My response to Carpe Diem #1160 Kema, birth-place of Yosa Buson

Today on our journey through Japan we have reached the region in which Yosa Buson (1716-1784) was born, Kema Settsu Province, nowadays known as Kema-cho, Miyakojima Ward, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture. Chèvrefeuille tells us that nature around Buson’s birth-place is gorgeous and a rich source of inspiration. He has shared two images of waterfalls and says that there are a lot of them,  which possibly inspired some of Buson’s haiku:

from far and near
hearing the sounds of waterfalls
young leaves
