1

一念は平和来たれと軍事侵攻さるるウクライナへの祈り

my heart is

filled with prayers for

peace in Ukraine

being invaded by Russian

military force

「ひまわり」はウクライナの国花です。

The sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine.

2

にはか掻き曇り暗澹たる世界 眼前(まさき)を揺らし立ちあらはるる

all of a sudden

the air becomes leaden

and then

the dark world appears

shaking before my eyes

3

凄まじき地獄の炎風吹きし如こぼたれしビル噴煙となる

as if

terrible hellfire winds

blowing up…

thick smoke rising

from the broken buildings

4

極寒の道難のがれポーランドへと歩むひと延々累々

extreme coldness…

people walk endlessly

along the road

to neighbouring Poland

to escape danger

5

独(ひと)りのみ統べ治むるが彼の国か科学進むも人閉ざしをり

is that country 

to be ruled by only one?

despite

the scientific advances

people are still closed off

6

核かざすロシアの攻めにおびえ様々おもふ2022年

2022…

the year we think about threats

against that country 

attacking with nuclear weapons 

being held up over its head

7

彼の裡の業の円環めぐりめぐり一つ所業にあらはるべし

his inner karma 

circling and circling 

finally unites 

to one and leads him 

to such behaviour

掟をやぶる侵攻に遮二無二つけし理(ことわり)を誰(た)れぞしるらむ

who will ever 

understand the reason 

why he recklessly 

decided to invade

breaking the law? 

一丸の業の塊(かたまり)解かれえず命の川は狭(せ)になりゆかむ

mass

lump of karma cannot be

unravelled

the flow of life-river will

become narrower

10

映像に影する彼はひとり座す 遠の側近 何の所以か

he is 

shown in the video 

sitting alone

why is his brain trust

apart from him?
