小鏡をとりおとしてや木下闇   石橋秀野

kokagami o toriotoshite ya koshitayami

            I dropped

            a small mirror—

            darkness under trees

                                                            Hideno Ishibashi

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

Fay’s Note: Hideno Ishibashi (1909-1947)   ‘koshitayami’ (darkness under trees) is a summer kigo.   It uses the word ‘yami’ (darkness), but it is a ‘shade’ under a leafy summer tree.
