What Remains After Rain?

i saw you
soaked
cold
tearful

i saw you
colorful
still
beautiful

You are………

swing
sway
i hope you stay

the weather is dreading
the temperature is boiling

stop
please
i need you

but wait
who are you?

So The Flower Has Wilted

花の色は
うつりにけりな
いたづらに
わが身世にふる
ながめせし間に

[The color of the flower
has faded,
while I lost myself
in idle thought
in this long rain.]

The Garden of Words

なるかみの, すこしとよみて,
さしくもり,
あめもふらぬか,
きみをとどめむ

[A faint clap of thunder,
Clouded skies,
Perhaps rain will come.
If so, will you stay here with me?]
—Man’yōshū, Book 11, verse 2513

なるかみの,すこしとよみて,
ふらずとも,
わはとどまらむ,
いもしとどめば

[A faint clap of thunder,
Even if rain comes or not,
I will stay here,
Together with you.]
—Man’yōshū, Book 11, verse 2514

Opening Poem – Now the Flower Blooms

難波津に
咲くやこの花
冬ごもり
いまを春べと
咲くやこの花

[In Naniwa Bay,
now the flowers are blossoming.
After lying dormant all winter,
now the spring has come,
and those flowers are blossoming.]

For You, I Head Out

君がため
春の野に出でて
若菜つむ
わが衣手に
雪は降りつつ

[For you,
I head out to the fields
to pick spring greens,
while snow falls
upon my sleeves.]

Dear My Friends – Remember

[Remember,
the gracious morning dew,
accompanying you to start anew.
Remember,
the lovely morning breeze,
caressing you to feel the bliss.]

Dear My Friends
I have no idea what’s going on,
but every problem has a solution.
Remember,
a beautiful morning awaits you,
with pleasure encourages you.

Long Last We Meet

めぐり逢ひて
見しやそれとも
わかぬ間に
雲がくれにし
夜半の月かな

[Long last we meet,
only for me to leave hurriedly,
for I could not recognize you,
like the moon
hidden behind the clouds.]
