Today’s Haiku (April 20, 2011)

象の背へ止むこと知らぬ花吹雪  小川玉泉

zô no se e yamukoto shiranu hana-fubuki

on an elephant’s back

never-ending

cherry blossom blizzard

One response to “Today’s Haiku (April 20, 2011)

  1. This reminds me of Elephant Head Mountain in Shikoku
    and Buson

    象の目の笑いかけたり山桜 
    zō no me no waraikaketari yamazakura

    an elephant’s eyes smile –
    mountain cherry blossoms

    蕪村 Buson
