<Tanka / 短歌>

合歓のはな風にそよぎて今日過ぎし道ゆく方の道かざしたり

silk flowers
waving in the wind
full bloom today
along a path I walked
and a path I will go on


※Silk flower is the flower of silk tree/ Albizzia julibrissin. I posted other photos to the blog.

ご心配おかけしていますが、私のところは今のところ、大丈夫です。
The river near my place is much swelled by the torrential rainstorm. However I'm OK at present.

<Tanka / 短歌>Hourai Bridge / 蓬莱橋

夏草の陰翳(かげ)しづまれる牛沼に朱のあざやけき蓬莱橋や

Ushinuma Pond
reflects light and shadow
of summer grasses--
glorious vermilion
Hourai Bridge there

※At Yokote Park in Yokote City, Akita Prefecture, Japan
I posted other photos to the blog.

<短歌/ Tanka>

it might be
no-mindedness time
given by God--
I mow growing weeds
before dog days

神たまふ無心の時かも土用前おひ茂りたる雑草を刈る


About the photograph, I used it as an image. It was not taken at the backyard of my house but in HARAKO, which is my morning walk course. Dog days of Japan are from July 19 to August 6, 2017. I posted other photo to the blog.
写真はイメージとして使用したものであり、我が家の敷地内ではありません。朝の散歩コースの原狐でとりました。今日は土用入りです。他の写真をブログに掲載しました。

<Tanka / 短歌>

時々にゲリラ豪雨の降り落ちて我に籠りし一日(ひとひ)暮れにき

now and then
Guerrilla rains fall --
a day
I stick fast to myself
passing away



<Guerrilla rain> or <Guerrilla rain storm> is < Torrential rain>.
It is used in common in Japan when we have the torrential rain.
Yesterday, we had rains all day.
More info about <Guerrilla rain> →https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guerrilla_rainstorm
I knew that <Guerrilla rainstorm> is from Japanese and the term is not used around the world thorough this piece.
昨日は終日雨で時々ゲリラ豪雨になりました。
本作を通じてゲリラ豪雨とは日本語であり、世界では通用しないことを知りました( *´艸`)

躓きて地獄あゆむも真昼間の白き陽光われを晒しぬ

falling down
and wandering in hell-
midday
white sunshine exposes
as I am


この短歌は処女歌集「短歌 原狐」の <9 Kawarake Hell 5 Pieces 川原毛地獄に5首>.の中の一首です。本歌集は、私の短歌作品だけでなく、作品にまつわる注釈として、仏教説話や日本の歴史も若干ながら記載しております。私はこうした説話や歴史が、日本文化の地盤であり私たち日本人の心の故郷と思っております。
自然写生をもとにして詠った歌を多く収めた歌集「短歌 原狐」を皆様に鑑賞して頂けたら無上の喜びと存じ上げております。

This tanka is from my first book "HARAKO", <9 Kawarake Hell 5 Pieces 川原毛地獄に5首>.
The contents of "HARAKO" are not only my tanka works but also some notes about the work. They are the Japanese Buddahist setsuwa story or the Japanese history, which I think is homeland of Japanese culture. Furthermore I think Japanese literature such as tanka and haiku is based on those stories.
"HARAKO" will surely bring you some inspiration.

<Tanka / 短歌>

林間に朝日透き差し光満つ我が苦解かるる聖域ならむ

sparkle in morning sun
between forest trees--
it may be
sacred space to relieve
my burden in this world

※I took this photo while morning-walking in HARAKO.

<Tanka / 短歌>

景色過ぎゆくそのあはひ風さはぎ青田の原にわれ降り立ちぬ

while the scenery
is about to pass away
a wind there
...I alight
at the green rice fields


※I took this photo yesterday on the way home from Akita City to attend Akita International haiku, senryu, tanka network meeting.
