先の世のわからぬことは鯰に聞け  桂 信子

saki no yo no wakaranu koto wa namazu ni kike

            if you have uncertainty

            of the future…

            ask a catfish!

                                                Nobuko Katsura

from “Haiku Shiki” (“Haiku Four Seasons,” a monthly haiku magazine), December 2016 Issue, Tokyo Shiki Shuppan, Tokyo

Fay’s Note:  Nobuko Katsura (1914-2004)   ‘namazu’ (catfish) is a summer kigo.
