fudaraku no umi kirakira to aki-henro
the sea to the Mount Potalaka
from Haiku Dai-Saijiki (Comprehensive Haiku Saijiki), Kadokawa Shoten, Tokyo, 2006
Fay’s Note: “fudaraku” (Mount Potalaka) was believed to exist in the seas south of India. In ancient Japan, some monks or priest tried to cross the sea to gain rebirth on Mount Potalaka.
