Today’s Haiku (June 8, 2012)

向日葵の蕊焼かれたる地図のごと  今井 聖

himawari no shibe yakaretaru chizu no goto

            sunflower’s core

            burning

            like a map

                                    Sei Imai

from ‘Haiku,’ a monthly haiku magazine, June 2012 Issue, Kadokawa Gakugei Shuppan, Tokyo

Fay’s note:   This haiku originally appeared in “Tanima No Kagu” (“Furniture In the Valley”), a haiku collection of the poet, published in 2000.
