Tanka...Nobe Okuri 野辺送り


松内に近きのひとの野辺送り雪花やさしく御柩(みひつぎ)に舞ひ

a neighbor's
funeral in new year week
fluffy snow flowers 
from heaven
falling on his coffin...


※ご近所の方が亡くなり、昨日お見送り致しました。
A neighbor  passed away and
 yesterday we his neighbors saw off him 
when his dead body was moved to a crematory, 
which is one of our traditional custom called Nobe Okuri / 野辺送り in Japanese.
