Haiku by Kawana Tsugio (川名つぎお)

ヒロシマの氏神は何をしていたのか

The god
Of Hiroshima
What was he doing?

からだの風景を鷹が舞っている

A hawk dances
the landscape
of your body

人体の風土記つぶさに書いており

The history
on our bodies is written
in fine detail

今朝の秋きのうのおれがまだ着かぬ

An autumn morning
Who I was yesterday
Has yet to come by

One thought on “Haiku by Kawana Tsugio (川名つぎお)

  1. I liked these quite a bit. I’m curious why he emphasizes Hiroshima in the first haiku, at least I assume he wrote it in katakana for emphasis.
