白木蓮の散るべく風にさからへる  中村汀女

shiromokuren no chiru beku kaze ni sakaraeru

              white magnolias

              falling and resisting

              against the wind

                                          Teijo Nakamura

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