Haiku by Dragica Ohashi

 

Reiwa period
rainbow over Tokyo
bring happiness

 

令和時代

東京の虹

幸せをもたらす

 

Side of the road
dandelion and coin are waiting
for the owner to find them

 

路傍

タンポポとコインが待っている

所有者が見つけるのを

 

New spring
arrives in the branches
on the carpet of a bush

 

新しい春

枝に到着

茂みのカーペットの上

 

A network of water
oaks tree going high
into the mist

 

水のネットワーク

樫の木が高くなる

靄の中に

 

March comes
to announce spring cleaning
in drops of rain

 

三月が来る

春の大掃除を発表するために

雨の滴で

 

Herbarium
on the page of the book
cherry petal fall asleep

 

植物標本集

本のページで

桜の花びらが眠り込む

 

Yellow iris
on a green leaf remains
a trace of dew

 

黄色のアイリス

緑の葉の上に残る

露の痕跡

 

New beginning light
I drop anchor and you too
white dove in blue sky

 

新しい始まりの光

私は錨を落とす、そしてあなたも

青空に白い鳩

 

Colorful sky
clouds fall into the lap
plum flower

 

カラフルな空

雲がひざに落ちる

梅の花

 

Red thread
slowly pulls out
of winter

 

赤い糸

冬からゆっくりほぐれる

Summer night
the star awakens
from a dream

 

夏の夜

星が目覚める

夢から

 

Forever friend
in heart shine like star
memory print

 

永遠の友

心の中で星のように輝く

メモリー プリント

 

Tanka Poem for Peace

 

Just another sky
tanka poem about Peace
waiting to be read
over the Rainbow of hope
Earth with Heaven harmony

 

まさに別世界

平和についての短歌

読まれることを待っている

希望の虹を越えて

天国のような調和の地球

Cherry petal

in my hand spring

from Adriatic

 

桜の花びら

私の手の中に春

アドリア海から

in the autumn fields of gold

Mural mosaic
