A Free-form Haiku by Ogiwara Seisensui

どちら見ても山頭火が歩いた山の秋の雲

— 荻原井泉水

Wherever I look,
autumn clouds in the mountains
where Santoka walked

— Ogiwara Seisensui

NOTES:

Ogiwara Seisensui (1884-1976) was one of the originators of free-form haiku, and he published early works by Taneda Santoka (1882-1940) in his haiku magazine, 層雲 (Sōun).
