World Haiku Series 2019 (37)

Haiku by Dragan J. Ristić

 

summer daybreak –
an owl keeps me awake
on the back home

 

夏の夜明け-

フクロウが私の目を覚ます

家に帰って

 

the hit of 60th
excites me again –
the way she did then

 

60回目のヒット

再び私を興奮させる-

彼女の当時のやり方

 

early spring —
a boy jumps in the river
after vodka 

 

春先-

少年が川に跳びこむ

ウオッカを飲んだ後

 

the spring can begin –
my first selfie with
cherry blossoms

 

春が始まる-

私の最初の自撮り

桜の花と一緒に

 

cherry blossom –
grandpa is today
so lively

 

桜の花-

おじいちゃんは今日

とても元気

 

magnolias in bloom…
suddenly I remember
my first love

 

花咲くモクレン…

突然思い出す

初恋を

 

starlit sky –
on the bench my fingers tap
in the rhythm of music 

 

星空-

ベンチを私の指が軽くたたく

音楽のリズムで

 

in a winter day
the bed mood in the room – 
my silent fart

 

冬の日

部屋のベッドの雰囲気-

私の音の立たないオナラ

 

dynamically
recycling field –
robots-semetery

 

動的に

再生利用の野-

ロボット墓地

 

neither a reason
to be sad nor to be merry –
a sudden shower

 

どちらの理由もない

悲しくも陽気でもないための-

突然のにわか雨
