Today’s Haiku (October 27, 2010)

道替へてみてもさびしや秋の暮   安住 敦 

michi kaete mitemo sabishi ya aki no kure

still lonely after selecting

a different road—

autumn dusk

Atsushi Azumi

from “Gendai no Haiku” (Modern Haiku), edited by Shobin Hirai, Kodansha, Tokyo, 1996

  1. Interesting, Fay. Is this a riff on Basho’s “kono michi ya . . . “? I recently posted versions of that haiku by Basho on my blog at: http://haikudoodle.wordpress.com.
    Best, Margaret
