cherry trees in bloom –

in her vocabulary

new words

 

満開の桜

彼女の語彙に

新しい単語

 

the rhythm of rain –
measuring whose loneliness
is greater

雨のリズム

測定する

誰の孤独が大きいか

 

asylum –

don’t visit him anymore

not even memories

もう彼を訪ねない

思い出すらも

 

in the classroom –

sharing the globe

with a refugee

教室で

地球を共有する

難民と

 

it’s snowing –

the silence colors itself

in borderless white

 

雪が降っている

沈黙はそれ自体を彩る

境界のない白色で

 

lighthouse ashore –

the old keeper’s thoughts

adrift

陸上の灯台

年老いた灯台守の考え

漂っている

 

leaves in the wind –

postponing again

leaving home

風に葉–

再び延期

家を出ることを

 

drawing the curtain –

at will I ignite in my room

the moonlight

カーテンを引く

私は自分の部屋で自由に火をつける

月光に

 

waiting for

the fall of another leaf –

the rest is silence

待っている

別の葉の落ちるのを

残りは沈黙

 

so boundless

and yet the summer sky

fits in a gaze

     

とても広大

それでも夏の空は

視線に収まる

 

― Translated into Japanese by Hidenori Hiruta
