Haiku by Dubravko Ivancan in Croatia (2)

2013/08/02

 

On June 9, Ms. Djurdja Vukelic Rozic , my haiku friend in Croatia, sent me an e-mail as follows.

Dear Hidenori-san,

thank you for your kind message.  Yesterday we were in the town of Krapina, there we have annual haiku meeting to the memory of Croatian foremost haiku poet Dubravko Ivancan (1931-1982), who wrote such wonderful haiku during sixties and seventies of the XX century.  Ha was the best friend of late Vladimir Devide. 

Ms. Rozic also sent me haiku by Dubravko Ivancan.

Here are a photo and haiku.

Stablo u aleji      

velegrada.  Svijetli

svojom svjetiljkom.

 

Tree in a line

in the city.  Lights

with its own lamp.

 

一列の木

市内で.光が

自分のランプと一緒に

 

 

Noć velegrada.   

Samo obasjana lutka

motri suprotne izloge.      

 

Metropolis night.

Only an illuminated dummy

watches the shop-window opposite.

 

大都市の夜

照らされたマネキン人形だけ

反対側のショーウィンド-を見る

 

 

Ulica

velegrada.  Noćenje

automobila.

 

A street

of the metropolis.  The cars’

overnight stay.

 

通り

大都会の.車の

一晩の駐車

 

 

S visoka kata visi

zid

u noć.

 

Hung from a high floor

the wall

in the night.

 

高い階から掛かっている

その壁

夜に

 

 

Vožnja u metrou.

Nad nekim umornim putnicima    

-čitav velegrad.

 

Ride on the subway.

Above some tired passengers

– a whole metropolis.

 

地下鉄に乗る

何人かの乗客の頭上に

― 大都市全体が

 

 

Most

mimoilazi sama sebe:       

automobili!

 

The bridge

passing over itself:

the cars!

 

自分の上を通り過ぎて行く

車!

 

 

Stanica… tu se

sastaju 

-kolosijeci…

 

The station … here

they meet

– the railway tracks

 

駅...ここで

出会う

-鉄道線路の軌道
