冬の虹消えむとしたるとき気づく  安住 敦

fuyu no niji kientoshitaru toki kizuku

winter rainbow

I notice it when it is about

to disappear

  1. Dear Fay,
    This is a very sad haiku especially taken in the context of this young poet’s life Atsushi Azumi (1970-1988). Do you have any more information about this person and why they died so young?
    Thank you,
