Sunday Snail and Post

soro-soro nobore
fuji no yama

"little snail
inch by inch, climb
Mount Fuji!"

Issa, 1763-1827

But I repeat myself.

i tried very hard to truly understand what this haiku means, but i end up more confused each time i tried. life's irony seems to be the best explanation, but what if it means something else? something much deeper, which for the life of me, i can never understand?
