Today’s Haiku (May 14, 2015)

白繭のいのち静かに透けてをり  相川やすし

shiromayu no inochi shizukani sukete ori

white cocoon

a life quietly

seen through

                                    Yasushi AIkawa

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

Fay’s Note:  ‘mayu’ (silkworm’s cocoon) is a summer kigo.
