Today’s Haiku (October 20, 2015)

柿食うて暗きもの身にたむるかな  大野林火

kaki kûte kuraki mono mi ni tamuru kana

            eating a persimmon

            something dark builds up

            inside the body

                                    Rinka Ohno

from “Gendai No Haiku” ,  (“Modern Haiku”) edited by Shobin Hirai, Kodansha, Tokyo, Japan, 1996

Fay’s Note:  Rinka Ohno (1904-1972)
