Tanka...Day Lily 忘れ草a1808


諸霊降りくる葉月たち 忘れ草 炎炎と咲く野辺を行きたり

spirits descend
from another world in August
day lilies 
ablaze ablaze in the field
recalling each, I go on ... 




※当地では今月(8月)の13日から15日までお盆があります。お盆の前には霊を迎える準備としての七夕があり、お盆の前には送り盆があり、盆踊り等の行事があります。私は8月は霊の月と思っています。

One of the biggest events for Japanese Buddhists called Obon is held August 13-15 here. During Obon, it is said that spirits of the deceased come from the other world to this world and we console them with decorating the family Buddhist altar and visiting the grave. Before Obon, the star festival is held to prepare for welcoming them and after Obon, Bonodori ( dance) or so on is also held to see off them, so I think of August as the spiritual month.

My soul floats on the breeze .
It flows to find the peace full

Be happy with what we are.

a warm August
the encounter with a different world
where flowers blossom from the light

The modest Rose puts forth a thorn:
The humble Sheep, a threatning horn:
While Lilly is bright, shall in Love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright.

someday
flesh is absorbed into the earth
spirit flies away
... the swing of the pendulum

the walls of silence
nest the serene step
the candle asks
to fear, to eternal, no time…
makeup made of stone
