Today’s Haiku (1000 th post!) (November 30, 2011)

千の矢の描く千の弧師走空  青柳 飛

sen no ya no egaku sen no ko shiwazu-zora

                     one thousand trajectories

                     of one thousand arrows—

                     December sky

                                                                             Fay Aoyagi


Fay’s Note: I started “Today’s Haiku” with the following haiku by Kai Hasegawa on January 22, 2009:

息白く歌のことまた弓のこと 長谷川 櫂

iki shiroku uta no koto mata yumi no koto

                                 in white breath

                                 about a poetry

                                 and an archery

                                                                             Kai Hasegawa

from “Kokû” (“The Void”, haiku collection by Kai Hasegawa), 2002, Kashinsha, Tokyo
