Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered

201801-301

Even when you are passing at a temple with no name (probably you just don’t know it) and even if you are not a Buddhist (probably not anyway), old wooden figures at a gate would stand out in your memory for a while. Their weathered faces are made by rain, wind, sun beam and awe.

風雨にさらされ、夏の光に耐え、畏敬の眼差しに触れ。

都会に雪の予報があれば、
うんざりして何事か失敗を取り繕うような気分で過ごしながら、
実はひとひらも白いものが舞わないその日に、
何かを失ったような残念な気分をどこか抱くのは、
雪が降る街を離れて何年も過ごした夜の慣わし。

鼻の奥に酸っぱい痛みを感じながら
早朝の冷えきった新聞受けをさぐり、
白金と赤に輝きながら距離を縮める木星と火星を仰いで吐く息に
始まったばかりのいちにちを感じるのは、
どこかでつまらない嘘を隠す今日の後ろめたさ。

小さな悪徳がなければ息苦しく、
微かでも美德がなければ呼吸すらできない。

雪の写真は昨年のもの。

Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

201801-201

Some words would be needed. First of all, it’s a cherry tree in bloom and cherry blossoms are sometimes interpreted as a symbol of growth in Japan because a school year starts in April with full blooming Sakura cherry. However there are so many kinds of Sakura and one of them starts blooming in December or January. It might not be the best one but it is still beautiful.

冬の初めに咲く桜もまた美しい。
