道化服ぬがずてんたう虫の死よ  鷹羽狩行

dôkefuku nugazu tentômushi no shi yo

            still in a clown’s attire

            the death

            of a ladybug…

                                                Shugyo Takaha

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

Fay’s Note:  “ladybug” is a summer kigo.
