in this world

the place under

‘kotatsu’ quilt

Sumiko Ikeda

from “Haiku Saijiki” electronic version edited by Kadokawa Shoten, published by Kodansha Sophia Shuppan, Tokyo, Japan, 2018

Fay’s Note: ‘Kotatsu’ is a low table with heat source (usually electric nowadays, but formerly a pit of hot coals) underneath, covered with a quilt to retain the heat, used for keeping warm in winter, as people sit around it with their legs under the quilt.
