Today’s Haiku (June 22, 2020) | Blue Willow Haiku World (by Fay Aoyagi)

貝塚にシカの骨ある青嵐  米田清文

kaizuka ni shika no hone aru aoarashi

deer bones

at the shell midden

fresh wind through the verdure

Kiyofumi Yoneta

 

Fay Aoyagi, translation

from ‘Haidan,’ (‘Haiku Stage’) a monthly haiku magazine, July 2017 Issue, Honami Shoten, Tokyo

Fay’s note: ‘aoarashi’ (literary translation: ‘blue storm’), a summer kigo, is ‘a fresh strong wind blowing in the season of green new leaves.’
