Today’s Haiku (December 13, 2015)

本の海の本の沖には神の孤独  夏石番矢

hon no umi no hon no oki niwa kami no kodoku

            ocean of books

            in offshore of books

            solitude of God

                                    Ban’ya Natsuishi

from ‘Haidan,’ (‘Haiku Stage’) a monthly haiku magazine,  December 2015  Issue, Honami Shoten, Tokyo

Fay’s Note:   Three ‘of’s in one haiku may not be great when one writes in English, but I want to show the tone (rhythm, rather?) by using three ‘no’ (‘of’) in the original.
