A Thin Needle: Haiku by Sumitaku Kenshin (住宅顕信)

朝はブラインドの影にしばられていた

The morning
was tied up in the shadows
of the blinds

ふと父の真似を子が爪をかむ

Imitating his father
a child chews his nails

深夜の細い針が血管探している

In the middle of the night
a thin needle
searches for a blood vessel

うすい胸に吸い込んだ冷たいレントゲンだ

Breathed into
my thin lungs,
cold x-rays
