Today’s Haiku (January 3, 2017)

宝船ひらひらさせてみたりけり  西村麒麟

takarabune hirahira sasete mitarikeri

Treasure Ship

 I make it

fluttering and fluttering

                                                Kirin Nishimura

from ‘Haidan,’ (‘Haiku Stage’) a monthly haiku magazine, December 2015 Issue, Honami Shoten, Tokyo

Fay’s Note:   ‘takarabune’ (treasure ship) is a New Year’s kigo.  It is a ship with Seven Gods of Good Fortune on the board or a painting of it
