法要


声も気配もなく匂いも体温も触感もないが
たしかにその場を眺めている自分がいると
書き残していましたよ
思いのほかじたばたしたので遺族は驚いたことだって
故人には伝えようがなかった
人は逝っても 記録と記憶があいまってしばらくの間は
余韻のようなものが現世にとどまるように見える
それだって時とともにうすぼんやりとしてしまうだろう
生前葬をしそこなった故人のために
今回は 故人が生きているかのようにしつらえて
ともに幽明の境を行き来できるように振る舞うこととしよう
生前の自分を回顧する故人を主賓席に座らせて

A ceremony

No voice,move,smell,temperature or touch
But certainly I am here watching the place
So wrote he
The family were astonished
That he suffered more pain than expected
But they could not tell him about it
It seems that man remains a while
With his record and memory
After he passed away
Although it will disappear as time goes
For him who wanted to give a funeral of himself
While he was alive
Let us give a memorial ceremony
As if he were living
And also pretend that we could come and go
Across the border between this and that world
Preparing a special seat for him to look around
