Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today I have a not so well known constellation for you to explore. It's Indus (indian, native American or native Asian). There is no mythology about this constellations. It is said that Petrus Plancius created it after seeing native people on Madagascar.
In the above image you can see that "Indus" borders the "Southern birds" as portrait earlier in this series.

indians exploring the night sky

Hm ... not as strong as I had hoped, but in a way I am very pleased with this haiku. What do you think of it?
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until September 17th at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our new episode, a new Tokubetsudesu episode, later on. For now ... be inspired and share your haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form with us all here at our Haiku Kai.
