<For Lake Shusen / 秋扇湖(鎧畑ダム湖)へ>

I drove to Lake Shusen, Yoroihata Dam Lake, in Semboku City, Akita, Japan, on 6th May 2022.  I was fascinated by the lake’s colour, filled with melting snow water.

In addition, it was already the early summer, but cherry blossoms were still blooming there.

1

藍碧の雪解の水は開かれてわれ消えゆかむ秋扇湖へと

Eternal cerulean

of melting snow water

is being opened…

I may disappear

into Lake Shusen

2

夏たちて湖(うみ)にみなぎる雪解水もゆる若葉の樹々しづむまで

start of summer…

water of melting snow fills

Lake to the brim

submerging the young leaves

sprouting now

3  

見あぐれば初夏の日差しが桜(はな)透かすかぎろひ結ぶ季(とき)のはざまか

look up…

the early summer shines

through cherry

the border of season shimmers

flaming up

< I made the following pieces in April>

4

マグノリア祈るがごとく中天に花芯をむけて憂春に咲く

like praying 

Magnolia blooms

with its core 

facing the midheaven

in the spring melancholy

5

満天は玲瓏と澄み西の端(は)にオリオンの光(て)る春の夜沁むる

whole clear sky 

being studded with stars

Orion 

shining at the western edge

…spring night floods me 

杉の花 季(とき)をにぎはせ花粉撒く風のさそひに怯みなく撮る

cedar blossoms

scattering seasonal pollen

I breeze by

up to them without fear

and take pictures

  • Since then, I have been sick with a pollen allergy.

7

ましぐらに空の流れを切るがごと若き白鳥北へと帰る

young swans

return to the north

in a headlong rush

as if cutting open

the sky

8

パラレルの鴨も映りし池の面や雪解の水は天水の如

the pond

reflects even the duck

in the parallel world…

melting snow is like

celestial water

9

淡紅の咲みを列ぬる梅の秀(ほ)の卯月に映ゆる奥羽の空

excellent plum blossoms

in the faint pink lining

beautifully

up to the sky

of Ou region in April

10

乱舞する連翹の花ひびき合ひ一つ譜となり園にかがよふ

forsythia dancing wildly

each floret vibrating

mutually

becomes one harmony

sparkling in the garden
