その先の花咲く道を…如月の寒風耳に夢まどろみて

 

beyond that point

I hope to go on

the flower road…

listening to cold winds

dreaming in February

 

 

2

つつましく春来たるらし あはあはと春雪舞ひて香のみ残せり

 

modestly

spring may come 

spring snow

fluttering faintly lightly

leaving only fragrance

 

3

あはあはと降りては消ゆる春の雪 つもらざるに見ん念の救ひを

 

faintly lightly

spring snow falls and fades

without piling …

I see salvation for

my obsession

 

4

色映ゆる花見えずとも雪原にわたる風の音けふは春めく

 

even though

I can’t see colorful flowers

today’s wind

over the snow fields

brings a tune of spring

 

5

夕さりに雪雲ちらす光さし三月(やよい)の山の端(は)おぼろあかるむ

 

early evening

sunlight dissipates

snow clouds …

the mountain-edge of March 

faintly brightening

 

 

6

あかときに春の香かすかにしのび入り窓凍らざる朝到来す

 

at daybreak

spring fragrance creeping

into air faintly

the morning comes

without windows freezing

2019年3月9日は、とても良く晴れ、久しぶりにすっきりとした鳥海山を見ることができました。

  It was fine very much on March 9th. 2019.  I could see the beautiful Mt. Chokai for the first time in a while during winter.

 

a clear blue sky

in March …

awe-inspiring

Mt. Chokai in pure white

from the top to the bottom

亡き友の1周忌に3首 / Three tankas for the first anniversary of my friend’s death

 

8

君逝きて早も一年(ひととせ)シンビジウム残雪を背に今日も咲きたり

 

one year has already passed

since you left this world —

against the remaining snow

cymbidium blooming today too

 

 

9

岩山を渡(と)し空に舞ふ鳥を追ひ目指す峰までなほ如何ほどや

 

walking the rocky mountain

chasing birds flying in the sky …

how far

is it still to the mountain-top

your goal?

 

 

10

ねがはくは今日聴く鳥は白鳥にあれ君に添ひ吾(あ)も聴かるるに

 

I hope

the birds you hear today

are swans …

I can also hear them

accompanying you  

 

 

晩秋にシベリアから飛来した白鳥が帰還する季節になりました。この頃、
頭上で白鳥が啼く声をよく耳にします。

It is the season that swans which came flying from Siberia in late autumn return.  These days, I often hear their whooping call.
