hyakunen go no yo oba omoe to kame nakeri
letting us think about
the world after one hundred years
a tortoise sings
from ‘Haiku,’ a monthly haiku magazine, August 2014 Issue, Kabushiki Kaisha Kadokawa, Tokyo
Fay’s Note: ‘kame naku’ (a tortoise sings) is a spring kigo, based on waka written by Fujiwarano Tameie, the 13th century poet.
