IX (a)


deep in the ricefield

the small scarecrow

needs help


the lights simulating fireworks

on the love hotel’s roof ー

summer coolness

  1. The scarecrow must be tired after his/her long, tedious work this summer?!

  2. Perhaps not so much tired as lost in the tall rice. Alternative senryu-style last line in 2nd haiku: “those fireworks below”.

  3. Richard Donovan Says:

    Perhaps “needs help” in the first haiku is emotionally internalising a bit much — how about “beckoning for help”?
