Haiku by Mallika Chari
[published in Wild Plum 2017]
[published in Chrysanthemum 2017]
two cuckoos wait
for the fountain to start
[published in Under The Basho 2019]
to and fro
coming from nowhere
all around neighborhoods
sound of lawnmowers
a lone sparrow
before their flight
flock of birds and i
back from fields
parrots on trees
are they verbose?
— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
