World Haiku Series 2019 (8)

Haiku by Andrea Cecon

 

seaside town
the ebb and flow
of my past 

 

海辺の町

私の過去の潮の干満

 

winter night

folding myself

into myself

 

Samobor anthology, 2019 (HRV)

 

冬の夜

自分の中に自分を折り畳む

 

falling down

from the overcast sky

a hawk’s cry

 

Mainichi Daily News (J), May 19, 2016

 

落下してくる

どんよりとした空から

鷹の鳴き声

 

icy dawn

the dog curls around

a sunbeam

 

Mainichi Daily News (J), Feb 28, 2018  

 

とても寒い夜明け

犬が体を丸める

太陽光線の当たるところで

 

fragile moon…
losing myself 
into the silence

 

Asahi shimbun (J), Dec 21, 2018

 

つかの間の月...

自分を見失い沈黙

 

night shore
her footprints

walk away 

 

夜の浜辺

彼女の足跡が遠ざかる

 

sitting still

more and more

fireflies

 

じっと座っている

だんだんホタルが増える

 

purple crocuses

the friends I never

talk about

 

紫のクロッカス

一度も話すことのない友だち

 

unbearable weight

of a thought ~

ginkgo leaves

 

ある思いの耐えられない重さ ~

イチョウの葉

 

gust of wind

the show changes

its playlist

 

突風

番組が録音テープリストを変える

  1. Terrific set including:

    seaside town
    the ebb and flow
    of my past

    winter night
    folding myself
    into myself

    And

    purple crocuses
    the friends I never
    talk about

    Are they the ‘Whitewell Purple’ which seed prolifically and are ideal for naturalisin but become weeds in rock gardens, and difficult to remove?

    Great set!!!

    warm regards,
    Alan

  2. Wonderful set of poems, loved them all especially ‘unbearable weight of a thought’ and ‘night shore’.
