Three pieces for Oyasu Valley in Autumn, in Minase, Yuzawa City, Akita.  The site has hot springs and it is famous for the colored leaves in autumn.

小安峡の紅葉に3首:小安峡は秋田県湯沢市皆瀬にある温泉で秋の紅葉で有名です。

 

1.

 

落水のしぶき上げ涌く不動滝その音きはむる秋麗葉々

 

Fudo Falls

gushing, splashing up…

the sounds of

falling water harmonize deeply

with alluring leaves in autumn

 

 

2.

 

光差し秋冴え映す谿川の水面きらめき虹色に光(て)る
 

sunlight falling…

autumn grace reflecting

on the valley river

the surface of water twinkles

brightening iridescent

 

 

3.

 

湯煙りに流れかすむる大墳湯わが指癒えよと瞬時差し入る
 

with the vapor

the wonderous hot spring flow

hazing around…

wishing my finger heal

I put it in for a bit

 

※  I have tendonitis in my left thumb. 私は右指に腱鞘炎があります。

 

 

4. 

 

うらさぶる住職かくる寺の内部(なか)われら檀家の行く末を問ふ

 

somehow deserted temple

where the priest died…

we parishioners

ask about our future

with anxiety

 

5.

 

隣村の住職預かる仏事(ほとけごと)わかき僧侶の読経は澄み
 

the chief priest

of the next village’s temple

left Buddhist service for us…

his son, young priest, chants sutra

with a clean voice

 

6.

 

彩(いろ)しづむ刈田の端の泡立草 黄燦然と朝日に立てり

 

by

the fading harvested rice field…

tall goldenrods standing

yellow colors brighten up

in morning sunshine

 

7.

 

身にしむる寒さは降りて気温二度あけ六つの空に白鳥の声

 

piercing cold

falling over

the temperature is 2℃/ 35.6℉

around 6 o’clock in the morning

I hear swans in the sky

 

※It was November 4th.  11月4日の朝のことでした。

 

8.

 

秋おしむ葉交ひの野面(のづら)いろ薄く芒穂のびて草の低まる

 

clinging to autumn

wild fields where leaves entangle

languish in colors

silver grasses glow tall

weeds get lower

 

9.

 

ぼちぼちと焦るもせずに歩みたり我ひとりのみ在る世にあらず

 

 

pursuing

my lonely way without

rushing…

the world is

not where I live all alone

 

10.

 

うっすらと雪に先んじ白ぼけし芒が原に桜葉の散る

 

 

over the field

of silver grasses becoming

slightly white

before snowfall…

leaves of cherry trees falling
