Haiku about Summer (5)


The other day I happened to see the Dove tree, which is known as the Pocket Handkerchief Tree because the white bracts can be seen to resemble a folded handkerchief around flower heads.



Handkerchiefs

folded on the tree ―

birds warbling


花開くハンカチの木や鳥歌ふ


Hana hiraku hankachi no ki ya tori utau



The handkerchief

tied to the tree ―

birds calling


結ばれしハンカチの木や小鳥なく


Musubare shi hankachi no ki ya kotori naku



― Hidenori Hiruta
