Zekku Renga “Cold Flower”


I would like to introduce the three-fold Zekku Renga completed at the "Kokin Denju and Tea Drinking Renga (Kisaragi no Kai)" event held on March 25th.
*``Zekku Renga'' is a renga format original to Wakasho, consisting of four haiku: ``ki'', ``jo'', ``ten'', and ``kei'', just like the zekku in Chinese poetry. The basic way of attaching and changing the song is the same as the spirit of renga, and it is easy to enjoy.

Title: “Cold Flower”

■Example: “Wet buds”
Origin: The longing for the buds to get wet in the long rain.
Waki (Jo): Tears spilling pale red sleeves
Third (turn): My heart is broken by the dance of Princess Saho
Yui (Yui): Flowers are blooming. Spring is coming.

■One occasion “Spring Day”
A spring day full of light under the sun
The remaining snow is far away, and the mountain cherry blossoms are blooming
I entered the inn, and a single hiragana remained on my clothes.
Relaxing impersonations when having fun

■Second edition “The day is snowy”
The sun is snowing, and I leave it to the momentum to bloom.
Tomorrow I'll cry to Haruno Urarani
Sumida River, taking a nap under the flower trees
Every day is a stream, spring is the dawn

■Three folds “Sakura Hana”
Sakura Hana is about to scatter
I hope it will become a dream in the night of Nubatama
I dance furiously and chase the shadow of the pheasant.
Nodoke-sama is Haruno Kasumi
