Today’s Haiku (November 27, 2011)

待針を失う木菟の声がして       平井久美子
machibari o ushinau zuku no koe ga shite
                          I lost a needle
                          for marking
                          a horned owl’s hoot
                                                                                   Kumiko Hirai
from “Gendai Saijiki” (Modern Saijiki), edited by Tôta Kaneko, Momoko Kuroda and Ban’ya Natsuishi, Seisei Shuppan, Tokyo 1997
