#Haiku Happenings #7: Fay Aoyagi’s Today’s Haiku features Kinichi Sawaki!
keichitsu ya tenshi no koe no hikigaeru
ground hog’s day—
with an angel’s voice
from “Haiku Dai-Saijiki” (“Comprehensive Haiku Saijiki”), Kadokawa Shoten, Tokyo, 2006
Fay’s Note: Kinichi Sawaki (1919-2001) Strictly speaking, ‘keichitsu’ (the day when insects emerge from hibernation underground), around March 6 in the solar calendar, is different from ‘Ground Hog’s Day’ in English, normally around February 2.
