World Haiku Series 2019 (36)

Haiku by Doris Pascolo

 

 

thin fingers-

crossing the moon

sweet musical notes

 

細い指-

月を渡っている

心地よい音符

 

 

friendly winter-

the last leaf

light between branches

 

優しい冬-

最後の一葉

枝の間の光

 

sparkling road-

looking at the moon

fireflies in a row

 

光を放つ道-

月を見ながら

横並びのホタル

 
night at the temple-

in the soft silence

new snowflakes

 

寺の夜-

静かな静寂の中に

新しい雪片
 

 

faint footprints

like a butterfly

my haiku

 

かすかな足跡

蝶のように

私の俳句

 

 

hidden hopes-

beyond winter

new spring

 

隠された希望-

冬を越えて

新しい春

 

mom’s embrace-

a slight breeze

the wind becomes sweet light

 

母の抱擁-

微風

風が甘い光になる

 

 

light drew-

in the silent stream

sick red leaves

 

光が描いた-

静かな流れに

赤い病葉

 

forgetting the sun-

moss grows

undisturbed

 

太陽を忘れて-

苔が育つ

乱されずに

 

 

honeymoon-

somewhere

…beyond time

 

(The Asahi Shimbun)

 

ハネムーン-

どこかで

… 時を超えて

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
