a haiku on Monkey Bridge
Monkey Bridge (Saruhashi 猿橋）is an old wooden bridge believed to have been built during the Edo Period at one of the dangerous spots along the Koshu Road (甲州街道）. Friday was such a fine day that I decided to make an excursion to the bridge. Here is a haiku I wrote on the occasion.
… Dazzling May leaves,
… Monkey Bridge spans a deep gorge
… Like a long monkey tail.
