Today’s Haiku (February 15, 2016)

茨の芽や己が根からむ岩の上  加藤楸邨

bara no me ya ono ga ne karamu iwa no ue

              rose buds—

              its own roots tangling

              on the rock

                                          Shuson Kato

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

Fay’s Note:  Shuson Kato (1905-1993)
