World Haiku Series 2019 (73)

Haiku by Jay Friedenberg

 

summer breeze

the soft rustle

of meadow grass

 

夏のそよ風

牧草地の草の柔らかいカサカサという音

 

storm surge

the crackle and crunch

of river ice

 

高潮

川の氷のパチパチとバリバリという音

 

rust belt

the sun sets

on an old factory building

 

ラスト地帯

夕日が沈む

古い工場の建物に

 

spring greens

the fleeting shimmer

of a dragonfly’s wing

 

春の緑

トンボの翼のつかの間のきらめき

 

tenement garden

a milkweed bloom

becomes a monarch

 

家の庭

トウワタの花が君主になる

 

night sky hallucination

at the Milky Way’s edge

Zarathustra Speaks

 

夜空の幻覚

天の川の端で

ザラスシュトラが話す

 

coronal mass ejection

a spark shoots out

from the campfire flames

 

コロナ質量放出

キャンプファイヤーの炎から火花が飛び出す

 

blizzard white-out

not seeing past

my expectations

 

吹雪のホワイトアウト

過去を見ていない

私の期待

 

moon landing

a fly touches down

on my pie crust

 

月面着陸

ハエが着地する

私のパイの皮に

 

spring runoff

a shift in the glacier’s

state phase diagram

 

春の雨水

氷河の状態図の変化
