春の水とは濡れてゐるみづのこと ]haru no mizu towa nureteiru mizu no koto

water in the spring
is the water
which is wet

Kai Hasegawa / 長谷川櫂

from “Gendai Haiku No Kanshõ 101” (Modern Haiku Appreciation 101) edited by Kai Hasegawa, Shinshokan, Tokyo 2001

Fay’s Note: Kai Hasegawa explained his haiku as follows:

“Almost everything which exists in this world gets wet by water. But, there is one thing which does not get wet by water. It is water.
Water makes a thing wet when it touches, but water itself never gets wet. However, I have a feeling that water in the spring is wet. Water should not be wet. But I felt water in spring might get wet when I wrote this haiku.”
