Collaborative Haiku Poem – ラスベリー

raspberries
dense growth of thorny plants
search of fruits

(Yoko Kelley)
ラスベリー棘かき分けて実を探す
ラスベリー とげ かきわけて みをさがす

Every year, the raspberry bush gives us red fruits and provides nectar to bumblebees and other insects. There is one trouble, thorns! Although the thorns are much smaller than those of roses, they still are thorns. Every morning, my arms are full of scratches after the harvest of raspberries. I am thinking about some way to cover my arms. But, raspberry season is over quickly.

 毎夏赤い実をつけ、マルハナバチや他の昆虫には花蜜を提供してくれるラスベリー(木苺)の唯一の難点といえば棘です。ばらの棘よりずっと小さいのですが棘であることには変わりなく、毎朝ラスベリーの収穫の後は引っ掻き傷が両腕にたくさん。腕を覆う工夫をしなければと考ている間にラスベリーのシーズンが終わるのが現実です。
