Today’s Haiku (January 24, 2016)

ひとりゐて壁に冴ゆるや昼の影 富田木歩

hitori ite kabe ni sayuru ya hiru no kage

              being alone

              and freezing on the wall—

              my afternoon shadow

                                          Moppo Tomita

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

Fay’s Note:  Moppo Tomita (1897-1923)
