Blue Willow Haiku World (by Fay Aoyagi)

森の方から短夜が来るんだよ   如月真菜

mori no hô kara mijikayo ga kurundayo

            from a direction

            of the wood

            a short night will come

                                                            Mana Kisaragi

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

Fay’s Note:   The original haiku is written in a colloquial style.   ‘mijikayo’ (short night) is a summer kigo.
