Blue Willow Haiku World (by Fay Aoyagi)

触れてこぼれひとりこぼれて零余子かな   高野素十

furete kobore hitori koborete mukago kana

            fallen by touching

            fallen by oneself…

            ‘mukago’ berries

                                                            Suju Takano

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

Fay’s Note:  Suju Takano  (1893-1976)    ‘mukago’ (‘brood bud’ or ‘bulbil’ according to my dictionary) is an autumn kigo.
