Today’s Haiku (February 1, 2017)

赤く見え青くも見ゆる枯木かな  松本たかし

akaku mie aoku mo miyuru kareki kana

              sometime in red

              sometime in blue…

              a withered tree

                                                        Takashi Matsumoto

from “Gendai no Haiku” (“Modern Haiku”), edited by Shobin Hirai, Kodansha, Tokyo, 1996

Fay’s Note:  Takashi Matsumoto (1906-1956)
