Here is an example of one of the 128 waka, the ahara (a-ha-ra) in the Hutomani anthology. In the above chart, it is the triplet of Anami 1 with Misohu pair (2) and it is outlined in red. This beautiful chart by S. Sakata was created especially for this article.
a no hara ha kami no atumaru
hito no hara situku ni waza no
miti zo umi keru
a-no-hara /amanohara /cosmic field where cosmic kami gather. hito no hara /miya / the place where human kami leaders gather, the central figure being the Amakami. atumaru / to gather. kami /a human who possesses great ability and has earned high respect; also kami is a powerful cosmic force of nature. situku /a beneficial dew of rain or light, flash of energy. waza /technology, methods, law, ability. miti / way, law. umi / born, produced.
The Ahara verse
A-no-hara where cosmic kami gather,
and hito-no-hara where human kami gather,
receive beneficial drops of rain and a flash of energy.
Thus a way is born.
The way, of course, is the solution to a perplexing problem faced by the people. The way is also in harmony with the laws of Cosmos. This waka suggests a deep connection between the Takamanohara of the Cosmos and that on the earth.The human kami leaders gather at hito-no-hara on earth with the Amakami leader as do powerful cosmic kami who gather at A-no-hara cosmic place. The abilities of the people are increased with the benefits of rain and light from the sky.
