#Haiku Happenings #4: Fay Aoyagi’s Today’s Haiku features Aizo Yamana!

Blue Willow Haiku World (by Fay Aoyagi)

戦争のなき世には亀鳴くらむか  山名愛三

sensô no naki yo niwa kame nakuranka

            in the world

            without wars

            a tortoise would sing?

                                                            Aizo Yamana

from “Haiku Shiki” (“Haiku Four Seasons,” a monthly haiku magazine), December 2017 Issue, Tokyo Shiki Shuppan, Tokyo

Fay’s Note:  kame naku’ (a tortoise sings) is a spring kigo.    A tortoise doesn’t sing, but ancients poets believed it would.
