Nagareboshi - Shooting star

blackest night aglow
icy harbinger of doom
near now, make seas rise
send shivers through ancient tombs
blue earth beware night sky 

temple bells ring out
monks in orange robes chant ohm
flocks of sparrows flee
lava hisses through fissures
blue earth beware the night sky

blackest night aglow
bodies meet in heavens flight
deep within plates move
crusts crush mountain tops high
blue earth beware the night sky

yurei* call rise, hide
the sacred toreii** gate falls
guard dogs howl the moon
harbinger of endings drone
blue earth, beware the night sky

*yurei, angry ghost
**toreii gate, arch before a Shinto Shrine

    : ) Your tanka was taken from this poem!! : ) Silly me, I google Nagareboshi and you've already translated it. The repetitive line sounds apocalyptic. Very nice, Deborah.
