Today’s Haiku (March 30, 2015)

遠足といふ一塊の砂埃  後藤比奈夫

ensoku to iu ikkai no sunabokori

            a field trip…

            it is a lump

            of sand dust

                                                Hinao Goto

from “Haiku Dai-Saijiki” (“Comprehensive Haiku Saijiki”), Kadokawa Shoten, Tokyo, 2006

Fay’s Note:  “ensoku” (field trip) is a spring kigo.   In Japan, school children take a field trip in the spring time.
