Natsu Basho 2017 Honour Tanka Day 1: TAKEKAZE (0-1)

as sumo's small (yet
girthsome) pond fills with fresh-faced
tadpoles, old frogs fight

Takekaze has stubborn
spirit; also many years

sumo injuries
accumulate, rendering
body resistant

will subjugates body for
a while, but not forever

Takekaze's tossed
by young Shodai on day one,
without resistance

the old frog's path through the pond
winding down, without much space
