Today’s Haiku (June 18, 2017)

どの国の時計に似たる時計草   後藤比奈夫

dono kuni no tokei ni nitaru tokeisô

which country’s clock

it resembles…

a ‘clock’ grass

                              Hinao Goto

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

Fay’s Note:  ‘tokeisô’ (‘clock’ grass, or passion flower) is a summer kigo.
