Thanks for this; do you know the year or from which collection?

This one is from "Kaki no ha" = Leaves of kaki, 1937:

I light
the fire

And an other one from his Diary 1934, 6th Febr.

how tall
my lonely shadow
lighted an oil lamp

(- when lighted ?) - after?

I have a not yet published The Milky Way - serie (in Finnish), that's why one from Santoka, as a bonus, if you please:

The briskness of The Milky Way
- but the wind is freezing
