World Haiku Series 2019 (20)

Haiku by Bakhtiyar Amini

 

flock of crows
the field by the house
changes color

 

カラスの群れ

家のそばの畑

色が変わる

 

refugee camp
pork and beef cooking
in one pan

 

難民キャンプ

豚肉と牛肉料理

一鍋で

 

paper airplanes
how ridiculous hit the ground
thoughts

 

紙飛行機が地を打つとは

なんてばかばかしい考え

 

what’s new ?
steam lifts up
pot lid

 

新着情報?

蒸気が鍋蓋を持ち上げる

 

weather forecast
I can’t remember
why I called you

 

天気予報

思い出せない

なぜあなたに電話したの

 

field of flowers
I’m getting off
not at my stop

 

お花畑

降りる

私の止まるところではない

 

anniversary
the kid is looking for himself
in the wedding album

 

記念日

子供が自分を探している

結婚式のアルバムで

 

chaos in the head
following the fly motions
in the room

 

頭の中のカオス

ハエの動きを追っている

部屋の中で

 

for a minute
merges with the crescent
cross on the dome

 

ちょっとの間

三日月と合併する

ドームを渡る

 

sunflowers
you keep staring
the wrong way

 

向日葵

あなたは見つめ続ける

間違った方向を
