Haiku about Spring (5)


Camellia is translated into Japanese as '椿' (tsubaki), which is made up of two words, ' 木 ' (tree) and '春 ' (spring). This shows that 'camellia' is the tree which announces spring.


Camellias

open the curtain

red petals out


幕開けて赤い花咲く椿かな


Maku ake te akai hana saku tsubaki kana



Camellias

brighten the yard

zen temple there


椿咲き禅寺の庭輝けり


Tsubaki saki zen dera no niwa kagayakeri



― Hidenori Hiruta
