1 

ややすれば時落ちて星絶えしとふ地の花まぼるに我らすべきは

 

you tell me

probably, time falls and stars die

soon …

what should we do

for the flowers on this planet?

 

 

2

動くもの無しとおぼゆる丑刻に水田に映る月影の揺る

 

around 2:00

thinking there is nothing

to move …

the moonlight waves

on the paddy fields

 

3

草の葉の玉つゆこぼれ蒲公英の白毛まばゆき皐月の田畦

 

dropping

dew from blades of grass

dazzling

white cotton of the dandelion

on a paddy-ridge in May

 

 

4

光さす青群山(あおむらやま) の谷間(たにあい)に吐息のごとく藤のかをりの

 

the sun-rays

down to Edenesque valley

of mountains

…fragrance of the wisterias

like deep sighs

 

 

5

そろそろと山挟わけてたづね見む原始かをるか朴花の妙

 

time must come

going on a mountain path

to see …

heavenly flower, magnolia-obovata

the primeval aroma

 

 

6

エーテルの満つるところにその白き花冴えわたらむか四照花(やまぼうし)

 

does it shine

in the space full of aether?

yamaboushi…

the white flowers

blooming all over

 

※Yamaboushi is Cronus kousa.

 

 

7

色透きて田畦を巡る水の音の黄昏をうつ芒種の日なり

 

sound

of crystal water around

the rice fields

resonates through twilight

… the time of planting grains

 

 

8

黎明のしづけさ覚ます五月雨に無心ならざるに問ふこと多し

 

… ask a lot

of early summer rain

to break the silence at dawn …

because, at not no-mindedness

 

9

何處へと空いざなふや… 卯の花のしづく滴り仄かにかをり

 

where

does it lead me?

the flower of deutzia

dropping rain-dews

emits fragrance faintly

 

 

10

いち早く青爽やかに染まりゐし紫陽花見たり山藪の中 

 

first in the season …

I see

hydrangeas dyed

fresh blue

in the mountain bushes   (June 12 , 2019)
