World Haiku Series 2019 (46)

Haiku by Eufemia Griffo

 

fallen leaves

everything goes away

together with the wind

 

落ち葉

すべてがなくなる

風と共に

 

bare branches

the leaves already regret

their dwelling

 

裸の枝

葉はすでになつかしく思っている

彼らの住処を

 

paper lanterns

a sparkling swarm

of tiny stars

 

提灯

小さな星の輝く群れ

 

misty woods

the invisible color

of hawthorn

 

霧の森

サンザシの目に見えない色

 

fishing village

the lapping of waves

in empty nets

 

漁村

波の打ち寄せる音

空の網に

 

The Great Wave

an old painter mixes colours

of the infinite

 

グレートウエーブ

年老いた画家が無限の色を混ぜる

 

Beech tree

the long roots

of childhood memories

 

ブナの木

子供時代の思い出の長い根

 

upturned shells

the sound of sea

buried in the sand

 

上向きの貝

砂に埋もれた海の音

 

late spring

the elderberry woods

blanketed by snow

 

晩春エルダーベリーの森

雪に覆われた

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
