#Haiku Happenings #5: Fay Aoyagi’s Today’s Haiku features 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.
