Today’s Haiku (May 23, 2016)

能の出の笛のごとくに蜘蛛の糸  宇佐美魚目

nô no de no fue no gotokuni kumo no ito

              like the flute

              at the beginning of a Noh play

              a spider’s string

                                          Gyomoku Usami

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