Today’s Haiku (January 18, 2017)

白鳥の声の降りくるまくらやみ   二階堂光江

hakuchô no koe no furikuru makurayami

            swan’s voice

            coming to fall…

            the pitched darkness

                                                Mitsue Nikaido

from ‘Haiku,’ a monthly haiku magazine, May 2016 Issue, Kabushiki Kaisha Kadokawa, Tokyo

Fay’s Note:  ‘hakuchô’ (swan) is a winter kigo
