Aki Basho 2017 Honour Tanka Day 8: TAKEKAZE (2-6)

(the full bout, in gif)

old Takekaze 
cracks me up, losing in most 
spectacular ways 

NEVER GET DEMOTED, 
TAKEKAZE; (retire first) 

old rikishi who 
lack credentials for elder 
status - what happens? 

I hope old Takekaze 
wanders abandoned forests 

I hope he talks with 
crows, and learns their mystery 
polymath language 

I hope he practices deep green 

wizardry, blessing the woods
