Haiku by Aioigaki Kajin (相生垣瓜人)

the centipede dies
and then its many legs
also die

蜈蚣死す数多の足も次いで死す

spring comes
like little children
crowding round

春来る童子の群れて来る如く

when you grill
saury from stormy waters
the fire goes wild too

荒海の秋刀魚を焼けば火も荒らぶ

though the green plum
has dropped to the ground
I’m still on the roof

青梅を落としし後も屋根に居る
