My selected haiku poems:(Kaa.Na.Kalyanasundaram)

 

 

*even though unequal 

unity in function…

the fingers!

 

等しさは違えど団結指五本

 

*many coloured flowers

in a single fibre …

the feelings of integrity!

 

繊維なす色々な花統合や

 

 

*the tears overflowed

for the little sparrows…

we sold the house!

 

家を売り雀の子らに涙する

 

*though drowned

blossomed as water circles…

stone thrown in the pond!

 

石投げる池の水面に花が咲く

 

*to protect the environment

refused to peck

the silent woodpeckers

 

つつき止む環境保護の啄木鳥や

 

 

*sitting on the bird too

you can fly in the sky…

if broad-minded!

 

鳥に乗り空飛ぶ君は寛大や

 

*for seeing the horizon

a sweet journey…

towards the home town!

 

旅思う水平線のふるさとへ

 

*we are on journey
in the galleon
towards the splendid aim

目標へガレオン船の旅路かな

 

*the personal language of
the Universe
is silence

 

沈黙や宇宙の人の言語なり

 

*in the yard of the house
a house warming
by little sparrows

 

雀の子家暖める庭の中

 

*for the jingle of coins
showers of sweet songs 

the street singer.

 

コイン得て歌のシャワーや街の歌手

 

 

*while stepping down
refused to show their faces
the mountain steps.

山下り顔見せ拒む石の段

 

 

 *even the bitter relations
become sweet jack-fruit-peals
in the shadow of separation

 

苦き仲別れの影や甘くなる

 

*to see the flowers
always searching in the soil
the roots of a plant

 

花見むと植物の根の土探し

 

*The bamboo embraced

The winter fire holes…

Lovely flute born!

 

竹抱かれ冬の火の穴フルートや

    My favorite thing about visiting here, aside from reading haiku, is learning about the global nature of haiku. These are lovely, and my favorite is the one about silence as a language.
