ARRANGING THE PLUM FLOWERS

umi ikete tsuki to mo wabin tomoshikage

arranging the plum-flowers,
I would enjoy them in the light of the lamp,
as if in the moonlight

© Taigi (1709-1771 ?)

accentuating
this moonless night
these arranged plum flowers

OR

arranged plum flowers
your colors radiate
this moonless night
