On the fourth day, the rabbits enjoy their first running in the snowy fields and hills.

 

 

 

T.A. Smith’s rabbit also printed his footsteps in the snow.

 

 

 

After that, they joined the poetry recitation again.

New Year!        

hearing its footsteps                               新年の足音聞いてわくわくす  

my heart throbs

 

Happy New Year                                           新年は 

when did you come?                                       いつ来たの 

so absorbed-                                               夢中になっていた

into a frozen leaf
 

 

 

 

 

Christmas lights
for the homeless dog’s
                                  クリスマスライト家なし犬の闇の時
dark moment
 

 

 

a stray cat’s look                                                迷猫の表情
at my camera: Oh God,

the paparazzi again!
                                               またパパラッチ!

January 1st
time is just older
                                            元日はただ一年の年取りや


by one more year
 

 


smiling sun–
the new year morning
                                        元旦や微笑む日を浴び暖まる


warming up
 

 


new year–
                                                             新年
one more candle
                                                   蝋燭が一本増える  
on my birthday
                                         誕生日に

New Year’s Day                                                  元日
rare passers-by in the clouds                             道行く人稀なり 
of blizzard
                                                    ブリザードの雲の中で

 
 

 


New Year’s greeters
alighted on the wires
                                         年始客電線に降りて楽譜書く
writing music notes

first sparrow’s song  

cool dawn blazes in                                 初雀日光浴びて夜明け燃ゆ 

breezy sunlight 

 

 

first purchase ―

a baby toy for                                            初売りにベイビートイを孫のため 

my grandchild

 

 

first greeting ―

a stray child on                                挨拶の初めは道の迷い子に 

the pavement

 

first dawn  

a distant flute tapers                          元旦や遠くの笛の音無限へと  

into infinity

on New Year’s day

thinking of my sons laughing                      元日や息子の笑い新雪に 

in the fresh white snow

 

again, the morning light:

what comes with the new year                      曙光また新年と雪何を呼ぶ 

and these flakes of snow?

New Year’s Eve
the same street beggar
                                 大晦日同じ乞食が別年へ
another year
 
 
New Year’s Eve
but even more so
                                         大晦日出る満月に際立てり
the full moon

New Year’s dawn

frozen on the window pane                  元旦や窓枠凍り息の霧

our fogged breaths

 

New Year’s Eve                                 大晦日

our pregnant cat overslept                  身ごもる猫は眠りすぎ 

the fireworks                                 花火があがる

rays of sunshine

through the shutters of clouds

          the first day                           元日や日光雲の覆いから 

 

world crisis –

only a half moon                            新空に世界の危機や半月が  

in the New Year’s sky

    dear Hidenori Hiruta san:

    Another string of little gems.

    I particularly liked Djurdja Vukelic-Rozic’s “New Year’s dawn” and Bruce Ross’ “the same street beggar.”

    Beautifully crafted.

    I enjoyed the read. Thanks for sharing.
