俳句の遍路 A Pilgrimage In Haiku

After getting complaints, I could not express myself with a few words and the request to express the experiences of the pilgrimage more tight, I remembered about my journey's diary. In it I kept records of the day in something fixed, short and tight, yet powerful in expressing thoughts and feelings.



俳句 Haiku

1日

青春24
電車に乗り換え
一日間

2日

衣服高い
お接待楽しい
新年御来光

3日

不眠の夜
古い温泉静養
道の裏

4日

遍路初め
仏の下から
遠い展望

5日

冬の登山
覆い隠して
天国到着

6日

どこにもない
山の血道まで
勇猛な予定

7日

頑張ってのに
外で寝られない
仏の天使

8日

不眠が2倍
故郷へ行き先
月光ながら


------------------


Day 1

24 the spring of life
switching from train to train
one day long

Day 2

expensive clothes
and wonderful gifts
the new year's first sunlight

Day 3

a night without sleep
relax in the old onsen
behind the streets

Day 4

the pilgrimage begins
from below the Buddha
you can see very far

Day 5

the climbing of mountains in winter
completely covered and hidden
the arrival at paradise

Day 6

from out of nowhere
to the vein of the mountains
a daring plan

Day 7

despite the greatest efforts
you cannot sleep outside
Buddhist angels

Day 8

the lack of sleep doubled
destination: home
going under moonlight

:) Very good! How about writing a Haiku summary as part of every one of your coming posts?

Good idea, but I think I keep them up for special occasions :)
