Tanka...Yamaboushi 2 山法師 2


うす雲に花見せ影す山法師わが今日ひと日の宿りとせむ

yamaboushi
toward a pallid sky
I dwell
in its shadow
all day today



※ 山法師(ヤマボウシ)は、中央の球状の花序が僧侶の頭のように
そのまわりの4枚の白い総苞片が僧侶の頭巾のように見えるので、
名づけられたといわれます。
Yamaboushi is "cornus kousa" in the scientific name, 
whose English name is Japanese doogwood.
When it is translated literally, it is Mountain Bonze.
It is said that cornus kousa is called Yamaboushi 
because the round inflorescente in the center 
looks like the head  of a monk and 
four pieces of white involucre around the inflorescente
 looks like the hood of a monk.

harmonic notes
wrapped by a shinning yamaboushi
I left to home

through darkened leaves
a 'whiter shade of pale'
Yamaboushi blooms ...
