Today’s Haiku (June 25, 2016)

斑猫や人類遠くまで来過ぎ   宮坂静生

hanmyô ya jinrui tôku made kisugi

              tiger beetle—

              the human race comes

              too far

                                          Shizuo Miyasaka

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

Fay’s Note:  Another name for ‘hanmyô’ (tiger beete), a summer kigo, is ‘michi oshie’ (a guide on the road).
