一日の眠き時間よ亀の鳴く  稲畑汀子

ichinichi no nemuki jikan yo kame no naku

time of a day

when one becomes sleepy…

a tortoise calls

Teiko Inahata

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

Fay’s Note: Though a tortoise doesn’t sing like a bird, ‘kame naku’ (a tortoise calls) is a spring kigo.
