World Haiku Series 2019 (13)

Haiku by Andrey Sobolev (Mitsunari Ae-no ason)

 

SPRING
 
sea pines
voiceless whisper: «stay»…
«forget her»

 

海辺の松

声のない囁き «とどまりなさい»… 

«彼女を忘れなさい»

 

the dewy grasses
where pines warming shore
the heart wanders

 

露に濡れた草

松が海岸を暖めている

心がさまよう

SUMMER

 
whitish night
bowl of sea of sorrow
silently carries

 

白っぽい夜

ボウルのような悲しみの海

静かに運ぶ

 

just two shades
of salty wet winds
in the heart

 

湿った塩風のちょうど二つの色合い

心の中に

 

should be in stones
no sail, no oar
bark Akamatsu

 

石の中にあるべき

帆なし、オールなし

樹皮赤松

AUTUMN

 

look got blurred
is it burning salt cauldrons? 
deserted shore

 

ぼやけて見える

塩の大釜を燃やしているの?

人気のない海岸

 

we’ve seen snow
whispered grass to leaf
embracing tightly

 

雪だ

草から葉にささやき

しっかりと抱きしめる


WINTER

cloud is drawing
long-long trace in the sky 
i’m reading «sorrow»

 

雲が描いている

空に長い長いトーレスを

私は«悲しみ»を読んでいる

 

when melt
all ice of grey sea
where will hide troubles?!

 

灰色の海のすべての氷が溶けるとき

どこにトラブルを隠すだろう?!

 

neither ice nor snow
this winter-not-winter
and I am not myself

 

氷も雪もありません

今年の冬は冬じゃない

そして私は自分じゃない

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
