World Haiku Series 2019 (54)

Haiku by GILLENA COX

 

wandering thoughts –

sound of the rain entering

the dawn 

 

さまよう考え-

雨の音が入る

夜明け

 

glow of azure sky

radiance of sun shining –

a new day unfurls

 

青空の輝き

輝く太陽の光輝-

新しい一日が開ける

 

aged mango tree –

even thinking about it

i feel dwarfed

 

熟成したマンゴーの木-

それについて考えることさえ

私は小さくさせられた気持ち

 

clear air of morning

holds a streak of pink clouds –

sensing a haiku 

 

朝の澄んだ空気

ピンクの雲の連なりを保持-

俳句を感じる

 

deep in thought –

the coo of pigeons draws 

dawn light in

 

深く思考-

ハトの鳴き声

夜明けの光りを引き寄せる

 

ask the butterfly

why skip this flower

under azure sky

 

蝶に聞いてください

なぜこの花をスキップするの

青空の下で

 

wishes

blown on the wind

dandelions

 

願い

風に吹かれている

たんぽぽ

 

day napping –

a noisy outburst of rain

steals time to dream

 

昼寝-

どっと降り出す雨の騒々しい音

夢の時間を盗む

 

under scarecrow’s hat 

his face with a stitched smile –

corn fields

 

案山子の帽子の下

刺繍された笑みの顔-

トウモロコシ畑

 

raking leaves –

a tropical mockingbird

skips and fans her tail

 

かき集められた葉-

熱帯のマネシツグミ

尾を跳ばしてあおぐ
