morning song
a moment
from spring

Comment: a poem with a colorful and positive vibe set in springtime (haru 春). The unmarked cut (kire 切れ) at the end of the first line spreads the echo of the ‘morning song’ (asa no uta 朝の歌) all over the scene for a brief, single moment, which is the exact extent of a haiku. An essential yet vivid piece of work with good harmony, thanks to the repetition of the ‘-ng’ sound in lines 1 and 3. A ‘haiku moment’ where the poet tries to ‘isolate’ a situation that is, however, inexorably destined to pass.
