Today’s Haiku (October 26, 2016)

色鳥来けふの言葉の数ほどに   加藤かな文

irodori ku kyô no kotoba no kazu hodo ni

            colorful birds come

            as many as a number

            of today’s words

                                                Kanabun Katou

from ‘Haidan,’ (‘Haiku Stage’) a monthly haiku magazine,  September 2013 Issue, Honami Shoten, Tokyo

Fay’s Note:   ‘irodori’ (various migrating birds come to Japan in the autumn) is an autumn kigo.
