Today’s Haiku (March 13, 2018)

和歌浦やひらがな書きに流れ海苔   鷹羽狩行

wakaura ya hiraganagaki ni nagare nori

            Wakaura Bay—

            seaweeds flowing

            in a shape of hiragana writing

                                                                        Shugyo Takaha

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

Fay’s Note:   In Japanese three styles of letters are used.   Kanji (Chinese characters), Hiragana (created in Heian era (794-1185) and often used by women when they write waka (Japanese style poem)) and Katakana (for imported words).
