Today’s Haiku (October 11, 2016)

あけびの実軽しつぶてとして重し  金子兜太

akebi no mi karushi tsubute to shite omoshi

              akebi fruit’s light weight…

              its heaviness

              as a rock to throw

                                                        Tohta Kaneko

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