謹賀新年

 

Here is a picture for the new year card, which welcomes the year of Snake.

 

巳年の遊び(年賀) 

 

Wish you all a Happy New Year!

 

Here are two haiku by Hidenori Hiruta.

 

初夢や蛇を敬ひ餅を食ふ     秀法

 

First dream –

to respect Snake

and eat rice cake              Hidenori

 

 

蛇の夢豊かな作と独楽回し    秀法

 

Snake’s dream –

to have a good crop

and spin a top                                Hidenori

 

Now let me post CALENDAR RENGA 2013 Ioana Dinescu in Romania presented to us on November 21, 2012.

 2013(Calendar)

 

Here are three photos of January, February, and March as well as their renga (連歌) with Hiruta’s Japanese translations.

  

2013 (Jan.)

 

Ioana

 

January – Frost

 

Frozen lake –

looking into the mirror

the frost whitens

the bell tower’s icicles

smelling of fresh basil

 

アイオアナ

 

1月 ― 霜

 

凍った湖 ―

鏡をのぞく

霜が白くする

鐘楼のつららを

目箒の佳い香り

 

2013(Feb.) 

Patricia

 

February – Bear’s shadow

 

the fog hides

budding cherry trees –

too early!

at the den’s entry

only the bear’s shadow

 

パトリシア

 

2月 ― 熊の影

 

霧が隠す

芽吹いている桜の木々を ―

早すぎる!

巣穴の入口には

ただ熊の影だけ

 

2013(March)

 

Virginia

 

March – Trinket

 

some snowdrops

in grandmother’s garden –

first march trinket

the spring wind takes

the clouds far away

 

バージニア

 

3月 ― 小さい装身具

 

いくつかのスノードロップ

おばあちゃんの庭に ―

最初の3月の小さい装身具

春風が連れて行く

雲を遠くへ

 

 

On January 3, 2013, Francis Tugayé, a haiku friend of mine in France, kindly presented us with his haiku and a piece of haiga by Graziella Depuy.   

Here are haiga by Graziella and haiku by Francis.

 

Tugaya's haiga 

 

Snowman.

on its wobbly shoulder

rests the moon.                           Francis Tugayé           

 

雪だるま

まっすぐでない肩に

月を置く                           フランシス・ツガエ

 

 

Lastly, let me post another picture and haiku of mine for the new year.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA 

 

詩の国や白銀の景あらはれる                        秀法

 

The Land of Poetry –

the landscape presents its show

with silvery snow                                          Hidenori

 

 

The next posting ‘Haiku by Ramesh Anand (2)’ appears on January 12.
