Nagoya Basho 2019 Honour Tanka Day Five: ENHO (4-1)

Enho so tiny, 
yet the great one Hakuho's 
main understudy 

impossible to think this 
little man could dominate 

and yet here I am, 
watching young Enho outsmart 
and overpower 

his time in sumo will be 
blessing, as long as it lasts 

recovering well 
from previous day's loss, young 
Enho moves briskly 

standard girthy rikishi 
can't keep up if they miss him 

and yet Enho has 
power beyond his small size, 
to thrust larger men 

has Enho met Hakuho 
yet? that's what I want to see
