Paper crane

Atrocious Nobugana
will he kill the cuckoo?
You, spring rains, sing
at eaves, 
princess heartsick leaves!

Nobunaga-evil-minded
will kill the cuckoo.
Who knows? Maybe a geisha
will dabble his heart
with a song...

Happiness eyedrops
between bloomed cherries.
Warm sights
caress a real dream
in the nest: tweet. 

Under the bloomed cherries,
gifted Hideyoshi
is singing a serenade.
Even if it is raining,
in his eyes I see the entire Sun.

Ieyasu- the patient
is waiting in the orchard
to pass the rain-
Opened umbrella 
by a flowers curl...

Paper crane carried by the wind...
Susanowa
is vanishing a nightmare
into a love kiss.
An unique little cloud above the palace...



Love poem
far in the skies
lover’s face.
Only Hitomaro knows the snows secret 
of the cherry’s flowers .
