Sowing seed of rice


先週の日曜日 お隣の農家さんの 籾まきを手伝いました。
お隣さんは農業の達人、そして とても優しい先生。

I helped the farmer next door to sow the seeds of rice last sunday.
They are master farmer and very kind mentors.
The rice will be planted in the paddy field about one month later.

Embroidering on a new strap

落書きみたいな 刺繍をする
前に 日暮里繊維問屋街で買った布
色とりどりの 帆布のなかから

それ自体は こんなに沈んでいるのに
青も 金茶も 赤も 白も
多くの色を 優しく引き立てる

そういえば  スウェーデンに住む友達が
昨冬の間 ずっとグレイに沈んだ 景色の中で
とびきり 賑やかな色の 糸を織っていた
きっと スカンジナビアの冬空に包まれて
彼女の色は 嬉しそうに 輝いていただろう

Embroidering like graffity
on a new strap.
Picked gray one from various colors of sailcloth
I bought at Nippori fabric town before.

Though it is such dull color itself
makes so many colors bright
even blue, gold-brown, red or white.

Come to think of it
A friend of mine who lives in Sweden
were weaving with so lively colored threads
in the gray-scape during last winter.
Her colors might be glowing happily
surrounded by the scandinavian winter sky.
