#Haiku Happenings #9: Fay Aoyagi’s Today’s Haiku features Jotaro Yawata!
tamasaka no tsuma no seisô hiashi nobu
in her rare formal attire
sun’s legs grow long
from “Nihon Dai-Saijiki” (“Japanese Comprehensive Saijiki”) , edited by Shuoshi Mizuhara, Shuson Kato and Kenkichi Yamamoto, published by Kodansha, Tokyo, Japan, 1981
Fay’s Note: ‘hiashi nobu’ (literal translation: sun’s legs grow long), a winter kigo, means ‘the daytime has grown longer.’
