‘born to’

marlene mountain

Spring at the Edge | Icebox

面影に花の姿をさき立てて 幾重越え来ぬ峰の白雲(俊成)
Led on and on
by the image of blossoms,
I have crossed peak beyond peak
to find nothing
but white clouds

– (Fujiwara no Shunzei)
David McCullough, translator

First Known When Lost: Days

Who needs Eternity?  One day is enough.

All the long day —
Yet not long enough for the skylark,
Singing, singing.

Bashō (1644-1694) (translated by R. H. Blyth), in R. H. Blyth, Haiku, Volume 2: Spring, page 195.

First Known When Lost

Simply trust:
Do not also the petals flutter down,
Just like that?

 

Issa (translated by R. H. Blyth), in R. H. Blyth, Haiku, Volume 2: Spring (Hokuseido Press 1950), page 363.
