Today’s Haiku (May 7, 2016)

ゆく水に暮春の墓のうつりけり  飯田蛇笏

yuku mizu ni boshun no haka no utsurikeri

              flowing water…

              a tombstone casting its shadow

              at the end of spring

                                          Dakotsu Iida

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

Fay’s Note:   Dakotsu Iida (1885-1962)
