Tanka...Purple Link 紫のゆかり


紫の縁(ゆかり)とおもふ葛の花 葉月の繁りより咲きにける

arrowroot flowers
showing my purple link
between you and you
... and me bloom
from luxuriance in August



※何年か前の8月、葛の花が咲く頃、こちらで偶然友だちになったその繋がり
が印象的だったので、紫の縁(ゆかり)という言葉をこの歌で使いました。
また、紫の縁は源氏物語の別名とも言われています。

"Purple Link" means some connection.
In this piece, I used it as the link of friends, 
who I came across here Google+ in August a few years ago.
Then arrowroot (Kudzu) flowers were blooming.
In addition, "Purple Link (Connection)" is also said to be 
another name of "The Tale of Genji", which is a novel written
by Murasaki-Shikibi in the early years of  A.D. 11ct, the Heian period.

arrowroot flowers
blooming between you and your smile
show me the pleasure...
for all that you do
your praise on me
my life gets its power

lingering harsh weather.
Lythrums are standing upright
in the heat haze
…reminice about my childhood
through the purple petals

Through my veins,
my forest nymph is waiting to me
"honey,
I bought you the apples
that you like"
