2010/10/23

 

On May 20, 2010, I received a comment on our website from Narayanan Raghunathan.

He says in his comment as follows:

Dear Hiruta-San:

Please post your Haiku and translation on our site: It will surely get translated into other languages.

Narayanan Raghunathan.

 

 

 

On June 8. I received another e-mail as follows:

Now I am a member of their Haiku forum  Wonder Haiku Worlds.  I would like to present his haiku about October to you with my Japanese translations.

 

 

the storm over ~

the green mountain

soaks in sunlight

 

嵐過ぐ青山光に浸りけり

 

fallen leaves ~

white butterfly mizmazes

a new dream world

 

落葉や白蝶夢幻惑いたり

 

 

the last kite

descends the sky

twilight beach

 

ラスト凧たそがれの浜空くだる

 

 

a leaf falls

a starry sky dissolves

in the pond

 

落葉や星空消えて池になる

 

 

withered fields ~

a wild storm brews

on darkening skies

 

暗い空嵐が起こる枯野かな

 

 

clouded stillness

engulfs before the rains ~

a distant caw

 

雨の前の静けさ遠くのカーカー

 

 

sound of rain

i turn to look out and

see falling leaves

 

雨の音振り向き見るや落葉を

 

 

rain subsides ~

many yellow butterflies

bask in fresh sunlight

 

雨おさむ黄色い蝶たち日に浴す

 

 

earth coloured bird

rests on the red roof

scans the earth

 

土色の鳥赤い屋根から地を見たり

 

 

a fly lands

on a walnut tastes

golden sunlight

 

くるみの上光味わう蝿一羽

 

 

yellow butterfly

flies up and down ~

brown just cruises

 

巡航や黄蝶の上や下に飛

 

 

midnight ~

sobbing amidst

crickets’ cries

 

真夜中のコオロギの声に嗚咽かな

 

 

blue butterflies

flutter on cotton clouds ~

sunlight after rains

 

雨後の光綿雲の上の青い蝶

 

 

heavy raining ~

a nonchalant crow still

on the coconut tree

 

豪雨にもココナッツの木のカラスかな

 

 

I sincerely hope that you will enjoy haiku by Narayanan Raghunathan.

 

The next posting ‘Tanka by Chen- ou Liu in Canada’ appears on October 30.
