#Haiku Happenings #1 (3/19/21): Fay Aoyagi’s Today’s Haiku features Tae Kakimoto!
rubikon wa watarazu ômi tsuchigumori
not crossing the Rubicon
Ohmi is cloudy
with yellow sand
from “Haiku-kai” (“Haiku World,” a monthly haiku magazine), April 2017 Issue, Bungaku No Mori, Tokyo
Fay’s Note: ‘tsuchi’ (yellow sand from Mongolia by the wind) is a spring kigo. Honestly, I have no idea about the connection between the Rubicon and Ohmi district (current Shiga Prefecture with the Biwa Lake), other than a fact that yellow sand has to cross the ocean to reach Japan.
