This summer's sump

The hall's doors are still opened

Enter the cold wind

 

Then comes the "Gorin"

Boxing event will be there

Still the doors opened?

It's either 'shrunken' or 'shrinking', take your pick.

Either is fine, I think.  One describes something that has gotten smaller but is now stable, the other describes an active process.

Is it a birdie?

Or is it an aeroplane?

It's Tobizaru!

 

Is it some linen

Or some un-ironed tee - shirts?

Akiseyama!

 

Is it a monster?

Has Godzilla awoken?

Terunofuji!

 

Who is cunningly 

Attempting to grab your legs?

Ura and Enhou!!

or steam jack upper body?

Terunofuji.

 

A grip of iron,

but falls for the rope-a-dope:

Asanoyama

 

Neither big nor fast,

M3 ... wait, Sekiwake??

It's Takanosho!

An open window
A rose bush is blooming, as
I watch May’s basho

The action is paused
in the background I see her:
the Posture Princess

What a sensation!
The scents from outside, plus the
images royal

Who’s battling next?
I’m completely lost inside
Twin spells of beauty

Twitch sumo shut down
Just one important question:
Will subs get refunds?

If not, I submit
That Twitch is as much a thief
As the channel 'was'

Will be held in Nagoya, says the rijicho. "We will hold the Nagoya basho and it will be a success.We will make sure that the sumo culture will not be forgotten around the country," he pledged. It will be the first time in a year and four months that a local basho will be held. It was held in March 2020 in Osaka but with no spectators. It will be the first local basho with fans since November 2019.  The number of spectators will be limited to 3800, half the capacity in Nagoya. "All Kyokai members will undergo PCR tests and only negative people will be allowed to travel to Nagoya. Stringent measures similar to the Kokugikan will be taken at the venue to prevent infection. As a general rule, going out from the lodgings will be strictly forbidden, " summed Hakkaku rijicho 

"Going out from the
Lodgings strictly forbidden"
So, who will be next?

Ignorant poets
call sweet aroma pungent.
Relax, have a whiff.
