Today’s Haiku (August 25, 2015)

潰(つ)ゆるまで柿は机上に置かれけり   川端茅舎

tsuyuru made kaki wa kijyô ni okarekeri

            until it loses its shape

            a persimmon placed

            on the desk

                                    Bosha Kawabata

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

Fay’s Note:  Bosha Kawabata (1900-1941)
