Toru Kiuchi: 5 Haiku

2 March 2009

a variety of things fall down under the dark of trees

いろいろなものおちてくる木下闇

a baby spider climbs up along my trousers’ crease

蜘蛛の子の服の折目をかけあがる

in a house where nobody comes a mackerel sky

たれもこぬ栖家にねむり鰯雲

morning glory’s seeds all black I shut the big door

まつくろな朝顔の種大戸閉づ

whenever I squeeze a citron I’m at twilight

青柚子を絞ればいつもたそがるる

(All of the above haiku first appeared in Toru Kiuchi, Hanazuou [Sappan] Tokyo: Kadokawa Shoten, 1997).
