Heron in Temple


寺の冬 鷺も餌に つかぬもの

winter in the temple -
even the heron can get
no food

I dedicate this haiku to all the water birds who lost their natural habitat thanks to the activities of the human race.

Dear Gabi san,
Here is my haiku, please.

ittyokusen/ mukai no mori e/ taka futatsu

two hawks flew
straight to the opposite woods
like an arrow

With love,
Hisanori Ogane


Thanks a lot, Hisanori san!
