〜Cool looking glass container お花を浮かべて〜

I put some flower petals on the water in a glass container.  Then I placed it in front of my late mother’s photograph, thinking it would create a cool feeling and that it would help praying for her soul. 

Before my late mother/

ガラスの器に水を入れて、花びらを浮かべて、涼しげだなと、母の遺影の前に飾りました。供養になればいいと思います。

〜My late mother  戸を閉める〜

This modern haiku says my late mother closes the door.  I just wonder if she closed it behind her back and is now leaving the place.

この現代俳句では、亡母が戸を閉めるとありますが、これは後ろ手で戸を閉めて、外へと出ていくところかしらと思いました。

〜Early spring scene 梅の枝〜

The month of February is just around the corner.  As my mother passed away in February, I can’t help but look at it that way.

〜Memories of my mom  母の日に〜

On these fans, I wrote the initial letter of my late mother’s name, a passage from an old children’s song and my favorite phrase, “breaking into a broad smile” for my mother.  She used to use a fan quite noisily before falling asleep on the bed on summer evenings.  Thus, these all are worn-looking but somehow, I feel like keeping them.

亡母のために書いた団扇です。母の名前の字と童歌の一節と「破顔一笑」。母は夏の夜、寝る少し前ベッドで団扇をバタバタと使っていました。それでぼろぼろですが何となく置いています。
