Today’s Haiku (January 14, 2017)

手毬唄日向のひとつづつ消えて  関戸靖子

temariuta hinata no hitotsu zutsu kiete

            a song for playing a ball…

            sunny spots disappearing

            one by one

                                                Yasuko Sekito

from “Gendai Saijiki” (“Modern Saijiki”), edited by Tohta Kaneko, Momoko Kuroda and Ban’ya Natsuishi, Seisei Shyuppan, Tokyo, 1997

Fay’s Note:  “temariuta” (a song for playing a traditional Japanese handball) is a winter kigo.
