Today’s Haiku (May 22, 2016)

章魚(たこ)沈むそのとき海の色をして  上村占魚

tako shizumu sono toki umi no iro o shite

              an octopus sinks…

              it becomes the color

              of the ocean

                                          Sengyo Uemura

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

Fay’s Note:   Sengyo Uemura (1920-1996)
