曼殊沙華・・彼岸花

Posted on October 8, 2020 at 7:43 PM
ジョギングは小さな旅
通りすがり神社の境内に
真っ赤な花が咲いていているのを見つけた。

門前で踵をかえ返す。

それは大きな木の下で幾りんかの花をつけた曼珠沙華(彼岸花)だった。

お墓の花。縁起が悪い。日陰の花。などと揶揄されるけれど最近は季節の花として、見る機会が増えたように思う。

乃木将軍の碑
曼珠沙華の脇に大きな板碑が建っていた。

案内板には
「日露戦争 戦勝記念碑。GHQの命令で 碑を壊するように命令されていた。
町民の気持ちとしては碑を残したい。
そこで予算がないと のらりくらり撤去を延期しているうちに7年間の占領が終わった。
今では貴重となった碑を残すことができた」。
と言うようなことが書いてあった。

大東亜戦争でアメリカと四つに組んで敗戦した日本。
アメリカとって強く危険な国だった。

その道徳、規律、協調集団力。
西欧諸国にはない日本の独特な国民性をいちばん怖れた。
どうやったら日本人の力をそぐことができるか?

アメリカGHQは力を削ぐさまざまな政策を実行していった。

乃木大将の碑、特に軍人を尊崇する碑は最初に破壊の指定対象となっていた。

今では最も近しい関係となっている日本とアメリカ。
終戦から75年。
こんな時代もあった。

幸手権現堂
昨年 曼珠沙華の季節に来たけれど、
そのピークを過ぎていた。

神社の曼珠沙華をみて再度出かけた。 
ここは関東で有数の桜の名所なのだけれど、 
曼珠沙華も素晴らしい。
土手いっぱいに真っ赤な色が咲き乱れている。

ここまで大群で赤く染まると
縁起の悪い花ではなくなっている。

日が照らすと一層鮮やかに輝いて見えた。

I precisely desired to appreciate you all over again. I'm not certain the things that I could possibly have created in the absence of the type of creative concepts provided by you concerning that concern. It absolutely was a frightful case in my view, but spending time with a new skilled avenue you resolved that made me to weep over happiness. I am just happy for the help and thus expect you really know what an amazing job that you're providing instructing others all through your web site. Most probably you haven't got to know all of us.

Thank you for turning out to be simply helpful as well as for selecting this kind of quality guides most people are really needing to be aware of.

I wanted to compose you that bit of word in order to give thanks as before for those beautiful basics you've documented above. This has been surprisingly open-handed with people like you to provide without restraint what a number of people would've sold for an e-book to generate some cash on their own, precisely considering that you might well have tried it in the event you wanted. These basics as well worked as the great way to know that other individuals have the same eagerness really like my own to see somewhat more with respect to this problem. I know there are millions of more enjoyable situations ahead for folks who look into your website.
