Haiku World of Patricia Lidia in Romania

2011/02/19

  

Patricia Lidia in Romania kindly contributed New Year’s card and her haiku to International Haiku New Year’s Festival 2011.

 

 

 

fairytales                     おとぎ話を聞く 

in front of the stove –        ストーブの前で 

childhood memories        子供の頃の思い出

 

 

on a rabbit’s back          兎の背に乗って

hopping in New Year –       新年に跳んでいる

new resolutions            新しい抱負が 

 

 

Patricia Lidia has her haiku blog, in which she kindly translated my haiku into Romanian: http://patricialidia.wordpress.com/ .

Haiku written by Hidenori Hiruta(蛭田秀法)

Haiku despre iarna/Haiku about winter

Haiku despre iarnă / Winter Haiku

La poalele muntelui Taihei, Akita/At the foot of Mt. Taihei, Akita

 

冬日差し山気緩むや太平山

The winter sun
breaks ―
Mt. Taihei

 

Soarele iernii
se sfărâmă în bucăţi –
Muntele Taihei

 

 

 

竹林の老ひし熊見る永遠の夢

The old bear
dreams of eternity
a bamboo grove

 

Ursul cel bătrân
visează-ntotdeauna
dumbrăvi de bambus

 

 

雪の中琵琶の音凍へ静寂へと

In the snow
too cold for the lute
into silence

 

În zăpadă e
prea frig pentru lăuta
ce stă tăcută

 

  

 

Here are some of Patricia Lidia’s latest works with some of photos, inspired by her birth city:

 

at vespers –            

crooked crosses on the hill,    

bird nests             

 

夕べの祈り

曲がった十字架

鳥の巣

 

 

heavy hat
on grandparents’ house –
frozen snow

 

重い帽子

祖父母の家の上

凍った雪

 

 

 

shooting star
searching through the snowdrifts,
only fireworks

 

流れ星

風に吹かれる雪を通して探す

花火だけを

 

 

 

drizzle
beggar’s palm
full of leaves

 

霧雨

乞食の手のひら

葉で一杯

 

 

yawning in class –
playing hopscotch on the pavement
only the chestnuts

 

クラスでは欠伸

舗道では石けり遊び

ただ栗だけ

 

 

 

cold drops of rain –
among boats and rubbish,
the last lily

 

冷たい雨滴

舟とくずの間に

最後の百合

 

 

insomnia again –
neighbor singing all the time
the same song

 

また眠れない

隣人がずっと歌っている

同じ歌を

 

 

lonely neighbor
old songs on harpsichord
and the rain

 

孤独な隣人 ―

チェンバロで古い歌

そして雨

 

hail falling
through the old roof –
lights and shadows

 

霰が降る

古い屋根を通って

光と影

 

 

a cup of tea
and an open book –
stars at the window

 

一杯のお茶

そして開かれた本

窓には星

I sincerely hope that you will stay and have a good time in the beauties and wonders of Patricia Lidia’s haiku world.

 

The next posting ‘Haiku by Students at Odate Homei High School(大館鳳鳴高校)in Akita, Northern Japan’  appears on February 26.

    I really enjoyed these. My favorites–the old bear, too cold for the lute, and a cup of tea. These are very nice on a winter’s day. Thank you.
