2009/07/25

 

  Professor Alexander Dolin teaches Japanese Literature and Civilization Studies at Akita International University(AIU). He also writes haiku.

We would like to post haiku by Professor Alexander Dolin and his students, Mr. Brent Sanders and Ms. Lim Shi Qi.

 

Haiku by Alexander Dolin

 

侘びしさや雨か雪かと霜月夜 

wabisisa ya  ame ka yuki ka to  simodukiyo

  

Lonely sorrows 

Is it sound of rain or snow

this November night?..

 

 

のこり葉のささやき聞こゆ秋のくれ 

nokori ha no  sasayaki kikoyu  aki no kure

 

                                                   Here comes the whisper

of the last remaining leaves

Autumn- evening dusk…

 

 

一葉散り惜しむ枝より涙かな 

hitoha chiri  oshimu eda yori  namida kana

 

                                                      One leaf falls down

and the branch lamenting it

drops so many tears…

 

Haiku by Brent Sanders

  

I sit in the dark,

And by the light of the lamp,

I write these strange thoughts.

  

 

Were time to soon stop,

I want to stay in this light.

Can I speak with Time?

                                                    The curtain of black

Fades into a violet sky.

An unknown bird calls.

  

 

Haiku by Lim Shi Qi

  

Leaves fall on the ground

When will the withering end

Perhaps till the trees bare

 

The sky is now cleared

Storm is finally over

The sun is shining
