Today’s Haiku (January 23, 2016)

物落ちて水うつおとや夜半の冬  飯田蛇笏

mono ochite mizu utsu oto ya yowa no fuyu

              a sound of a fallen thing

              hitting the water—

              winter midnight

                                          Dakotsu Iida

from “Nihon Dai-Saijiki” (“Japanese Comprehensive Saijiki”) , edited by Shuoshi Mizuhara, Shuson Kato and Kenkichi Yamamoto, published by Kodansha, Tokyo, Japan, 1981
