Today’s Haiku (April 26, 2017)

公魚をさみしき顔となりて喰ふ  草間時彦

wakasagi o samishiki kao to narite kuu

              surf smelt

              I eat it

              with a sad face

                                                        Tokihiko Kusama

from “Haiku Dai-Saijiki” (“Comprehensive Haiku Saijiki”), Kadokawa Shoten, Tokyo, 2006

Fay’s Note: Tokihiko Kusama  (1920-2003)   ‘wakasagi’ (surf smelt) is a spring kigo.
