Today’s Haiku (May 23, 2017)

夜干して男を刺しにゆく女  真鍋呉夫

yoboshi shite otoko o sashi ni yuku onna

              drying clothes at night…

              a woman goes

              to stab a man

                                                        Kureo Manabe

from ‘Haidan,’ (‘Haiku Stage’) a monthly haiku magazine, September 2014 Issue, Honami Shoten, Tokyo

Fay’s Note:  Kureo Manabe (1920-2012)  ‘  ‘yosusugi’ (washing at night) or ‘yoboshi’ (drying at night) is a summer kigo.
