#Haiku Happenings #4: Fay Aoyagi’s Today’s Haiku features Haroo Tanayama!
mi ni awanu yadokari no yado moteamasu
not fitting well
a hermit crab doesn’t know what to do
with its shelter
from ‘Haidan,’ (‘Haiku Stage’) a monthly haiku magazine, July 2017 Issue, Honami Shoten, Tokyo
Fay’s Note: Literal translation of ‘yadokari’ (hermit crab), a spring kigo, is ‘‘borrowing lodging.’
