#Haiku Happenings #4: Fay Aoyagi’s Today’s Haiku features Hifumi Yoshioka!
nemachizuki chikyû wa yahari ransei da
moon I wait lying on my side
I am convinced
the earth is oviparous
from “Haiku Shiki” (“Haiku Four Seasons,” a monthly haiku magazine), December 2017 Issue, Tokyo Shiki Shuppan, Tokyo
Fay’s Note: ‘nemachizuki’ (moon one waits while lying on one’s side) is the moon of the 19th day of the lunar month) and an autumn kigo. FYI: the moon of the 17th day is ‘tachimachizuki’ (moon one waits while standing) and the moon of the 18th day is ‘imachizuki’ (moon one waits while sitting).
