〜It is a haiku on the New Year but …  宝物〜

Although my memory ability has now declined immensely, I used to have a marvelous faculty of memory when young, which made some people really hate me.  Moreover, because of that GOOD memory, I myself had to continue to hate someone for a long spell.  However, I have always treasured my memory faculty and memories themselves all my life. Memories do not need spaces and they do not have shapes and weight, either.  I believe they are as precious as jewels that keep on shining in my heart. 

Although it is a haiku about the New Year, I wrote it because it happened to hold my attention.

Memories do not occupy/

今では随分と弱くなってしまいましたが、私は若い頃には人から嫌がられるほどの記憶力がありました。その記憶力の良さのために、誰よりも私自身が誰かを憎み続けるということもありました。けれども、それでも記憶力や思い出は尊いものだと私は生涯信じ続けています。思い出というものは場所もとらなければ、形や重さもありません。それは心の内の小さな宝石のように貴重で大切な存在です。

実はこれは新年の句ですが、ふと目に留まりましたので、書きました。
