  • 劫初のおく The Beginning of this World 楠 誓英 Kusunoki Seiei

万緑の丘のひとつをうつしたる馬頭観音ガラスまなこよ

one of the hills
of myriad green leaves
is mirrored
in the glass eyes
of the Horse-headed Kannon

 

蓮弁の礎石の窪みにたたへたる水に映りし空も暮れゆく

reflected in water
in the hollow of the pedestal,
lotus petal shaped,
the sky too
is darkening

 

カタカタと後輪のみ鳴る自転車がゆふかげのなか揺らぎつつゆく

making a clatter
with just its back wheel,
a bicycle
goes swaying along
in the night shadows

 

踏まれたる邪鬼はかすかに笑みてゐるこの太子堂昼でも昏し

the trodden Jaki devil statue
is faintly smiling
in this Prince Shõtoku hall
which is dark
even in the daytime

 

腕と同じ数だけ腋窩はあるだらう千手観音に向かひゐるとき

when I’m facing
the Thousand-armed Kannon
I conjecture
she has as many armpits
as she has arms

 

はちすの実垂れてこほれる池の底動かぬ鯉の寄り添ひてをり

lotus nuts
dangle and drop
to the bottom of the pond;
they lie close
to the motionless carp

 

のぼらざる愛染坂のかがやきぬ受話器のおくのきみの言葉に

Aizen Zaka,
that ‘amorous slope’
I won’t climb,
sparkled at your words
from deep in the phone receiver

 

林間に落ちゆくひかりそびらみせ劫初のおくに鵙は飛びゆく

between the trees
the sunlight is sinking –
showing its back
the strike flies away
into the beginning of this world

 

                       地獄絵図を見て
暗闇に牡鹿の舌のびらびらと地獄のひとの臓物そよぎゐる

Looking at a painting of Hell
like a stag’s tongue
hanging in the darkness,
entrails
of a human in Hell
are fluttering

 

浄土より地獄が良いといふひとのまなこに燃ゆる青き伽藍は

a blue Buddhist cathedral
burns in the eyes
of a man
who says Hell is better
than the Pure Land
