霜が降りたばかりの朝焼けの野原に

祖父の背中を追いかける五歳の私の幻影が映る

 ⁻

麦わら帽子を掴み

キノコ採りに出る祖父の背中に向かって

祖母は一体何と声をかけていたのだろう

 ₋

言い出したら聞かない駄々っ子のように

返事もせずに

祖父は一心に山を目指した

 ⁻

ナラ林の下生えを

音を立てて踏みつける祖父の背中を

私はひたすら追いかけた

 ₋

湿った苔の匂いが沈滞する樹木の枝葉の合間から

傾きかけた午後の日差しが入り込んでも

祖父は前に向かって進んで行った

振り返らずに 

 ⁻

鬱蒼と茂る木々の枝葉の隙間に

わずかに覗く西の空に向かって

翳す私の左手を

柔らかな木洩れ日は包み込んだ

夕刻の稜線を照らす光のように 

 ₋

私は

カブトムシの幼虫と戯れ

飛び交う鳥のさえずりに耳を澄まし

野花を摘んだ

祖父の背負い籠がいっぱいになるまで 

 ⁻

もしかすると

私が吹く笹笛の音は

祖父の耳に届かなかったのかもしれない

 ₋

もしかすると

祖父の小宇宙にも

私は存在していなかったのかもしれない

    Poetic reflections on generational boundaries, the separation – the ridge – between the them as we knew them and the them as they were by the lovely and loving Megi of HappyNest in America

    googlely translated

    Light of the Ridge Line

    The field of sunrise just frost

    Reflected my illusion of five-year-old chase the back of the grandfather

    Grasp the straw hat

    Toward the back of the grandfather out to mushroom picking

    Grandmother would had over the heck what voice

    As spoiled brat that can not ask if you started to say

    Without even reply

    My grandfather was aimed at intently mountain

    The undergrowth of beech forest

    The back of the grandfather stomp to make a sound

    I chase earnestly

    From interval of oak branches and leaves that smell of damp moss to stagnation

    Also enters the afternoon sun that was leaning

    Grandfather was performed progressing toward the front

    On without looking back

    West of the sky and spread large visible slightly

    Holding up my left hand

    Soft Komorebi is wrapped’s

    As light to illuminate the evening of the ridgeline

    I

    And playing with larvae of the beetle

    And listened to the chirping of birds flying

    I picked the wildflowers

    Until the grandfather of backpack basket is full

    Possibly

    I blow the sound of Sasafue is

    And might not reach the grandfather of ear

    Possibly

    Also grandfather of microcosm
