usurai wa miyama e kaeru hana no goto

Thin ice
like flowers returning
to deep mountains

Tr. Janine Beichmann

Fujita Shōshi is a contemporary haiku poet; among his recent collections is
Kariudo (The Hunter, 1976).
This poem appeared in the haiku magazine Taka in March 1978.

Thin ice was stretched like a film over the surface of the water, so clear it seemed it would shatter at the touch. The fragile purity must have sent the image of scattering flowers flashing through the author’s mind and from there the poem was born. The author completed it with“returning to deep mountains”, but the phrase is not susceptible to rational explanation.
This poem, with its dependence on the reader’s intuitive understanding, is typical of one kind of modern haiku.
