Red Flower

Once I saw it
On the battlefield of the end of the land

The grass does not grow
In rainwater

If you don’t give blood
It will die

And it must also be
Human blood

One flower blooms
At the end of summer

Its pulsating reddish petals

I want to dig a little bit
If such a red flower is in bloom
 


【 赤い花 】

かつて 
地の果ての 
戦場で見た

  その草は
  雨水では
  育たないのだ 

血を 
与えなければ 
枯れてしまう

  それも
  人の血
  でなければ 

夏の終わりに 
一輪の花が 
咲く

  その脈打つような
  血色の
  花弁 

ちょっと 
掘りおこして 
みたくなる

  そんな赤い花が
  もしも
  咲いていたら
