Today’s Haiku (July 28, 2016)

月光を拒む色なり夜光虫  中村 遙

gekkô o kobamu iro nari yakôchû

              in the color

              which denies moonlight

              noctilucae

                                                        Haruka Nakamura

from ‘Haidan,’ (‘Haiku Stage’) a monthly haiku magazine, February 2016 Issue, Honami Shoten, Tokyo

Fay’s Note:  ‘yakôchû’ ‘a noctiluca’ or ‘a phosphorescent animalcule’) is a summer kigo.
