Today’s Haiku (July 16, 2017)

冷し馬の目がほのぼのと人を見る  加藤楸邨

hiyashi uma no me ga honobono to hito o miru

            warm eyes

            of a horse being washed

            looking at a human

                                                Shuson Kato

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

Fay’s Note:   Shuson Kato (1905-1993)     ‘uma hiyasu’ (washing a horse with cold water) is a summer kigo.
