Three More Haiku by Togo Sayu (藤後左右)

兵隊の誰もが持つ遥かなるまなざし

All soldiers have it
That distant look

敬礼の上手と下手は生れつきだ

Being good or bad
at giving a salute
is something you’re born with

炎天や行くもかへるも溶岩のみち

Blistering heat –
Coming or going
A path of lava

Haiku by Togo Sayu (藤後左右)

恋煩いだろうか血を吐き胸が痛む

Could this be lovesickness?
I’m coughing up blood
and my heart aches

舞いたい鶴舞いたくない鶴一緒に舞う

The crane that wants to dance
And the crane that does not want to dance
They dance together
