When I was a junior high school student, I began to write poems. Because my crush read a poem for me. The poem at that time...
“Over the mountains Carl Busse(1872～1918) Over the mountains, far to travel, people say, Happiness dwells. Alas, and I went, in the crowd of the others, and returned with a tear-stained face. Over the mountains, far to travel, people say, Happiness dwells.”
So when I'm happy or sad, I often write poems I am a member of a poem's coterie Our coterie's book of poems is published once a year The book of poems arrived today so I was very glad.
My poem is difficult to translate in English, I think. Because my English skills is not so good now so I want to improve it
I went to Bihoku hills park with my husband. The cosmoses are the flowers which come into bloom in the park. It was very beautiful. There were still lots of buds. I took a picture of cosmoses. My husband took a video. And then my husband watched Kagura. So I went to the Japanese- style big house alone. And I drank powdered tea there It was a hot day like summer.
I attended a seminar about poaching provision in Hiroshima City. It's been a long time since I went to Hiroshima. I still went there even if it is raining. I rode a bus and I arrived there at 12:30 pm. I walked around Hiroshima Peace Park. There were lot of people even it was raining. There are also lot of foreigners.
I took a picture of Atomic Bomb Memorial Dome and after that I went to International Meeting Center. In the seminar, I found out that there are poachers in Japan. A poacher catches and sells illegally. Poachers catch Japanese white eye illegally. They used nets and duct tape that is why the birds got hurt. I felt sad. Wild birds survive in nature only. It is important to teach those poachers a lesson and enlighten their minds.
My house roof was repaired starting today. The three men who are going to repair my house went here early in the morning. They take off all the roof's kawara (roof tile.) The repair will last for 1 week. That is why I can't do my laundry because there are dust and windows are closed although we have a good weather today. My dog is very happy today because there are people outside and she likes people.
It was not raining for two weeks. But now it is raining. It is my husband’s holiday every Saturday but now although it is raining he went to junior high school because he was invited to be a guest in their sports day. And then he will have a meeting in his Highschool after. But a while ago, he went back in the house. I asked him "What happened?" and then he said he forgot the school key. " I can’t enter the school, what a rotten luck!". This afternoon he went back in the house to eat lunch and after eating he immediately went back to their school. This afternoon I will have my household chores.
I went to Seto Island Sea. I was looking forward to see some snipes but it was high tide. I forgot check “ high tide & low tide” I saw seagull flied far way.
Today is my birthday. I received an email, telephone call, and some presents. I’m happy. However I become a year older, I'm not happy about it. But I had no choice. One can’t do anything about getting old.
Our house was built 30 years ago. We're already done in paying the house. But the house needs some renovation. So, we repaired the kitchen, entrance, outer wall, and etc.
The other day a man came to my house. The man worked in our neighbor's roof. He said.“ Your house’s roof is shabby.” If you will not repair that as soon as possible it may leak. So, I decided to repair the roof next week. The cost is about 500,000 yen. We had no choice. But it was not fun.
