寝不足は気で補えと朴咲きぬ   金子兜太

nebusoku wa ki de oginae to hô sakinu

does it say

my guts should cover lack of sleep?

 ‘ho’ blossoms bloom

                                                            Tohta Kaneko

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

Fay’s Note:  Tohta Kaneko (1919-2018)  ‘hô no hana’ (white barked magnolia blossom) is a summer kigo.
