World Haiku Series 2019 (34)

Haiku by Djurdja Vukelic Rozic

 

autumn gale

whatever direction

I go

 

秋の強風

どの方向でも

私は向かう

 

severe blizzard

some of the wind

in the chimney

 

激しい強風

風の一部

煙突に

 

sunday morning

there must be a good reason

for the rook racket

 

日曜日の朝

十分な理由があるに違いない

ミヤマガラスの大騒ぎに

 

single walnut fruit

among bare boughs

a new constellation

 

たった一つのクルミの実

裸の枝の間に

新しい星座

 

in the store

a moth and I selecting

a wool sweater

お店で

ガと私が選んでいる

ウールのセーターを

 

forest clearing

summer breeze suddenly changed

contour of the sky

森林伐採

夏の風が突然変わった

空の輪郭

 

long after the war

our dog whines and trembles

at New Year’s fireworks

戦争のずっと後

我が家の犬がくんくん鳴き、震える

新年の花火で

 

fishing with father –

an empty bucket full of

unforgetfulness

父との釣りー

からのバケツが一杯

忘れられないことで

 

all these shiny roofs

and just enough moonlight

to tuck in every tile

 

Rangitawa Publishing Haiku and Humor contest, New Zealand 2013 – 1st place

 

これらすべての輝く屋根

そしてまさに十分な月光

すべての瓦に押し込むほど

 

on the platform –

my wet feet, a crow and

a part of the moon

プラットホームでー

私の濡れた足、カラスそして

月の一部
