Yamanoe no Okura: Monday Twitter Poem

homely as a wristband made
of woven grass
...yet I would live
a thousand years.

   Yamanoe no Okura 
   translated by Gary LeBel
                                               from Lilliput Review #180

he likes the grass
of my umbrella-hat...
flitting firefly
translated by David G. Lanoue


PS  Since the blog folks haven't been able to play when it comes to the Monday Twitter poem, if you don't have Twitter and Facebook, I decided to start posting it here, too, without additional cross-postings.  Enjoy.

Send a single haiku for the Wednesday Haiku feature. Here's how.

Even reading about a firefly brings me joy. I've always loved them so.

As one of those non-Twitter, non-Facebook folks, I thank you for adding this feature to your blog.
