Today’s Haiku (March 24, 2016)

をどるよな埴輪もつともかげろへり  中村 遥

odoru yona haniwa mottomo kageroeri

              haniwa figure

              looks like dancing

              in the heaviest spring haze

                                          Haruka Nakamura

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

Fay’s Note:  ‘haniwa’ is a clay figure in the 4-6th century.   Many of them were buried near the tomb.
