Today’s Haiku (July 24, 2016)

洗ひ髪身におぼえなき光ばかり   八田木枯

araigami mi ni oboenaki hikari bakari

              hair washed…

              all the lights

              I cannot recall

                                          Kogarashi Hatta

from ‘Haiku,’ a monthly haiku magazine, May 2016 Issue, Kabushiki Kaisha Kadokawa, Tokyo

Fay’s Note:  Kogarashi Hatta (1925-2012)   ‘kami arau’ (washing hair) is a summer kigo.
