has become home

Two Renga, Untitled
both by the monk Sougi, English translations by Steven D. Carter


Hito wo yume to ya
omoishiruramu;
sumi suteshi,
sono wa kochou no
yadori nite


That man's life is but a dream -
is what we now come to know.

Its house abandoned,
the garden has become home
to butterflies.

****************************

suzushisa wa
mizu yori fukashi
aki no sora


Ah, for coolness,
it rivals the water's depth -
this autumn sky.
