Today’s Haiku (January 25, 2017)

鷹舞うて音なき後山ただ聳ゆ  飯田蛇笏

taka môte oto naki gozan tada sobiyu

            a hawk dances…

            the mountain in the back

            soars without a sound

                                                Dakotsu Iida

from “Nihon Dai-Saijiki” (“Japanese Comprehensive Saijiki”) ,  edited by Shuoshi Mizuhara, Shuson Kato and Kenkichi Yamamoto, published by Kodansha, Tokyo, Japan, 1981

Fay’s Note:   Dakotsu Iida (1885-1962)
