naked branches
spangled with light and music
tinkling icicles

My response to Carpe Diem #1585 icicles (tsurara)

In today’s episode, we have a classical kigo for late winter: Icicles (tsurara), and two example haiku:

yûkaze ya yashiro no tsurara hi no utsuru

night wind —
the shrine’s icicles
reflect the lights

Kobayashi Issa

icicles hanging
at the gutter of the old mansion
sun’s reflections
