Today’s Haiku (May 21, 2022)

カードはブラック水中花などいらぬ   西崎久男

kaado wa burakku suichûka nado iranu

            my card is in black

            I will not need

            a “magic” flower

                                                            Hisao Nishizaki

from Haidan, (Haiku Stage) a monthly haiku magazine, July 2013 Issue, Honami Shoten, Tokyo

Fay’s Note:  “suichûka” (an artificial flower that “blooms” when immersed in water) is a summer kigo.
