Birds in our Paradise



hatsu-tsubame ... ... 初燕
yane no kazari ni ... ... 屋根の飾りに
nari ni keri ... ... なりにけり

.. .. .. first swallows -
.. .. .. they left decorations
.. .. .. on the roof

erste Schwalben -
sie hinterlassen Dekorationen
auf dem Dach

first swallows -
my roof turned canvas
for modern art



I did very similar "decorations" with ink dripping down from the pot held above the door many many many years ago. This spring the birds remind me of natural droppings and drippings. Thank you, swallows!

Today we have the sad happy ending to this story.
A strong rain over night has taken care of the art and left only the roof.

You might want to enjoy a haiga about swallows by Origa in the Kigo Database:
