花栗のちからかぎりに夜もにほふ   飯田龍太

hanaguri no chikara kagiri ni yo mo niou

            chestnut blossoms

            their scent with the endless power

            even at night

                                                            Ryuta Iida

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

Fay’s Note:  Ryuta Iida (1920-2007)   ‘hanaguri’ or ‘kuri no hana’ (chestnut blossom) is a summer kigo.
