梅雨の蝶人に逢はんと飛び来るも   石田波郷

tsuyu no chô hito ni awan to tobikurumo

            a plum rain butterfly

            flies to see a human

            but…

                                                Hakyo Ishida

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

Fay’s Note:   Hakyo Ishida (1913-1969)     ‘tsuyu’ is a rainy season in June in Japan.   I use a literal translation of the word ‘plum rain’ here.
