Today’s Haiku (June 22, 2020) | Blue Willow Haiku World (by Fay Aoyagi)

貝塚にシカの骨ある青嵐  米田清文

kaizuka ni shika no hone aru aoarashi

deer bones

at the shell midden

fresh wind through the verdure

Kiyofumi Yoneta

 

Fay Aoyagi, translation

from ‘Haidan,’ (‘Haiku Stage’) a monthly haiku magazine, July 2017 Issue, Honami Shoten, Tokyo

Fay’s note: ‘aoarashi’ (literary translation: ‘blue storm’), a summer kigo, is ‘a fresh strong wind blowing in the season of green new leaves.’

in my ten fingers

John Berger / “and our faces, my heart, brief as photos” (English Version)

What reconciles me to my own death more than anything else is the image of a place: a place where your bones and mine are buried, thrown, uncovered, together. They are strewn there pell-mell. One of your ribs leans against my skull. A metacarpal of my left hand lies inside your pelvis. (Against my broken ribs your breast like a flower.) The hundred bones of our feet are scattered like gravel. It is strange that this image of our proximity, concerning as it does mere phosphate of calcium, should bestow a sense of peace. Yet it does. With you I can imagine a place where to be phosphate of calcium is enough. ~ John Berger
