sleepless


Masajo真砂女 1969 age 63

冬の夜の海眠らねば眠られず

fuyu no yo no umi nemura neba nemura rezu


Lee & Emiko’s English

a night in winter---

unless the sea can slumber

I too am sleepless

As the night deepens the surf sound gets into my ears and I can not fall asleep.

People do sleep at night, but the sea does not. I will stay awake with the sea;

the sea is alive.


Season word: a night in winter ( winter )

__Beautiful painting Sakuo... the water moves.
__Until the sea sleeps, I cannot.

surf thunders
my buds of sleep are lost
the gulls snore
