謹賀新年

Here is a photo of calligraphy by a Chinese artist, who welcomes the year of Dragon and wishes for happiness and longevity.

 

 

 

Wish you all a Happy New Year!

Now, let me post a new calendar Patricia Lidia inRomania presented to us on December 20, 2011.

Here is a photo of the new calendar by Ioana Dinescu and Constanta Erca in Romania.

 

 

 

 

cold of the winter

I’d take you in my hot hands

but you’ll die of it               by Clelia Ifrim

 

冬の寒さ

熱い両手で手に取りたい

しかし、あなたは消えてしまうわ       

 

Djurdja Vukelic Rozic inCroatia contributed her haiku and photo, saying in her e-mail as follows:

Dear Hidenori-san,

 

sending you best wishes and a short prayer for the Year of Dragon, about to enter our lives:

 

Enrich people’s lives with love, Peace and food for all!

Let Nature be kind to humanity!

Please, teach mankind to care for Nature!

Present men/women with willingness to forgive and help each other!

 

Wishing you a good health, much joy in your work and friendships,

sincerely

Djurdja Vukelic Rozic, IvanicGrad,Croatia

Here is a photo of haiku by Djurdja.

 

 

 

The first walk

paving the way for

New Year’s resolutions

 

初歩行 ―

道をつけながら

新年の抱負のために 

 

相場いぶき (Aiba Ibuki) in Japan also contributed her haiku and photos.

She created them in autumn, 2011, at Akita International University(国際教養大学).

Here are photos of haiku by Ibuki.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last of all, let me post my haiku here.

 

初夢や龍の背に乗り天翔る

 

first dream ―

 

on the back of a dragon

 

in the heavens

 

元日の息深々と祈りけり

 

First prayer

 

taking a deep breath

 

New Year’s Day
