3.11 Haiku from P K Padhy, India

2011/10/22

 

On September 25, 2011, I received an e-mail from Mr. P K Padhy, India.

Dear Mr. Hiruta,

With deep grief, I humbly dedicate the following haiku to the brave people of Japan — calmly struggling with the unprecedented natural calamity. May God render spiritual strength to all.You may post them at appropriate column.

P K Padhy, India

Padhy says about himself as follows:

About Me

A Petroleum Geologist by profession. Believer of humanity and brotherhood; not so much religious or ritualistic. Believe in preserving the beauty and value rendered by Nature.

 

Now let me post his haiku with my Japanese translations.

 

HAIKU

earthquake–
misplaced syllables
shaken the haiku

地震―

置き間違えられた音節

俳句を揺るがせり
******
sun sets–
unlike the other day
in the east

 

日が沈む―

他の日と違って

東に
******

Japanese sky—
smoke hijacking
the bright star

 

日本の空―

煙がハイジャックしている

明星を
******

new sun–
plants from the rubbles
lazily warm up

 

新しい太陽―

瓦礫から生える植物

ものうげに暖まる
******

tsunami—
silent Buddha
in tears

 

 

津波―

無言の仏陀

涙せり
******

high tide
on top of the trees–
lost geography

 

高潮

木々の上に

失われた地勢
******

mother’s lap
the tender looks at
tearful moon

 

母のひざ

優しい表情で

涙でいっぱいの月を見る
******

streams of tear–
rise in tsunami
height

 

涙の流れ―

津波に生まれる

高く
******

Fukushima ruins–
echo resounds back
to sea

 

福島の廃墟―

こだまがはね返る

海へ
******

dilapidated—
shades of broken moon
on buried faces

 

荒廃―

壊れた月の陰

埋められた顔々に

******

tsunami sea—
full moon in
grief

 

津波の海―

満月がかかる

悲嘆の中に
******
