Today’s Haiku (February 12, 2020)

蠟梅につめたき鳥の貌があり  岸本尚毅

rôbai ni tsumetaki tori no kao ga ari

winter sweets

among them, a bird

with a cold face

                                                Naoki Kishimoto

from “Haiku Shiki” (“Haiku Four Seasons,” a monthly haiku magazine), March 2013 Issue, Tokyo Shiki Shuppan, Tokyo

Fay’s Note:  ‘rôbai’ (‘winter sweet’ or ‘calycanthus’) is a winter kigo.
