Haiku Poem

white snow sparkles
twinkling slowly fades dark
sun vanishes away

When snow first falls, it blankets the ground in white. The fallen snow glistens and sparkles looking majestic. However, slowly, the snow begins to get dirty and turn an ugly dark color. Eventually, the snow melts and fades away completely under the harsh sun.

雪解けや輝き褪せる積もり雪
ゆきどけや かがやきあせる つもりゆき

雪が降り始めると、地面は、一面、雪でおおわれ、真っ白になります。降った雪は、きらきら輝いて、厳かな感じがします。しかし、雪は、だんだん汚くなり始めて、黒ずんだ色になります。最後には、強い太陽の光によって、完全に溶けてしまいました。
