The Flower of Carnage

修羅の花

死んでいた朝に とむらいの雪が降る
はぐれ犬の遠吠え 下駄の音きしむ
いんがなおもさ みつめて歩く
闇を抱きしめる 蛇の目の傘一つ
いのちの道を行く女 涙はとうに捨てました

Shindeita asa ni tomorai no yuki ga furu
Hagure inu no touboe geta no otokishimu
Iin na naomosa mitsumete aruku
Yami o dakishimeru janomeno kasa hitotsu
Inochi no michi o yuku onna namida wa tooni sutemashita

On a dead morning, a burial of snow falls.
The howling of a stray dog and the sound of geta (wooden clogs) break the silence.
I walk with the weight of the heavens on my mind.
Embracing the darkness of the night, with a patterned (wooden) umbrella in hand,
Treading the path of a woman’s life, tears falling to the ground throughout the journey.

———–

ふりむいた川に 遠ざかる旅の灯が
凍てた鶴は動かず 哭いた雨と風
冷えた水面(みずも)に ほつれ髪映し
涙さえ見せない 蛇の目の傘一つ
怨みの道を行く女 心はとうに捨てました

Furimuita kawa ni toozakaru tabinohima
Itteta tsuru wa ugokasu naita ame to kaze
Kieta mizu mo ni hotsure ga miutsushi
Namida sae misenai janomeno kasa hitotsu
Urami no michi wo yuku onna kokoro wa tooni sutemashita

Following the twisting river, the path leads me far by the lamplight.
The frozen cranes cannot move, weeping rain and wind.
The ice of the frozen pond reflects the silhouette of a woman’s hair.
If only I could not show my tears, with a patterned (wooden) umbrella in hand.
Treading the bitter path of a woman, her heart falling to the ground throughout the journey.

———–

義理も情けも 涙も夢も
昨日も明日も 縁のない言葉
怨みの川に身をゆだね
女はとうに捨てました

Giri mo nasake mo namida mo yume no
Kinou mo ashita mo henno nai kotoba
Urami no kawa ni mi o yudanete
Onna wa tooni sutemashita

Honor, compassion, tears, and dreams,
yesterday, today.. all without the hope of words.
I commit my body to the river of bitterness.
A woman falling to the ground throughout the journey.
