Rakuichi - In Seasons
Suggestive of life,
the colours of Spring.
Rousing the palate,
and new beginnings.
Arid wastelands this used to be
Summer comes to this oasis
Even the fish seek cool relief
But few will get their rest in peace
Autumn harvest of soft-shell crab
Slivers of fish and avocado
Dainty rice speckled with roe
Crowned with pearl of orange gold
Dark cold Winter brings sweet delight
A frosty palace of suspended life
Sandy black sesame seizes the soul
And melts away the cares of old
As with the inaniwa udon, all can be found at...
