Today’s Haiku (May 17, 2015)

まつすぐな音して竹の皮を脱ぐ  神蔵 器

massugu na oto shite take no kawa o nugu

with a straight sound

a bamboo sheds

its skin

                                    Utsuwa Kamikura

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

Fay’s Note:  ‘take kawa o nugu’ (a bamboo sheds its skin) is a summer kigo.
