Today’s Haiku (September 23, 2010)

シーソーの父空にあり秋桜   中野真奈美

shiîsô no  chichi sora ni ari aki-zakura

father on the seesaw

up in the sky—

cosmos

Manami Nakano

from “Haiku Dai-Saijiki” (“Comprehensive Haiku Saijiki”), Kadokawa Shoten, Tokyo, 2006

Fay’s Note:  “aki-zakura” (literally translation: ‘autumn cherry blossoms’) is another way to say ‘cosmos.’
