Today’s Haiku (January 26, 2017)

わが歩む落葉の音のあるばかり  杉田久女

waga ayumu ochiba no oto no aru bakari

            when I walk

            nothing but a sound

            of fallen leaves

                                                Hisajo Sugita

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:  Hisajo Sugita (1890-1946)
