World Haiku Series 2019 (107)

Haiku by Mallika Chari

 

loud tides

disturbed mind

becoming silent 

 

 [published in Wild Plum 2017]

 

大潮

心を乱した

沈黙

 

open sky

fluttering thoughts

finding space

 

  [published in Chrysanthemum 2017]

 

広々とした空

羽ばたく思い

スペースを見つける

 

hot day

two cuckoos wait

for the fountain to start 

 

 [published in Under The Basho 2019]

 

暑い日

二羽のカッコウが待つ

噴水が始まるのを

 

swing 

to and fro

my thoughts

 

ブランコ

行ったり来たり

私の考え

 

forest

coming from nowhere

a stream

 

森林

どこからも来ない

流れ

 

summer

all around neighborhoods

sound of lawnmowers

 

近所中

芝刈り機の音

 

afternoon

a lone sparrow

hopping around

 

午後

孤独なスズメ

跳び回る

 

ploughed field

parrots feasting

before their flight

 

耕された畑

オウムのごちそう

飛行の前に

 

dark clouds

flock of birds and i

back from fields

 

暗雲

鳥の群れと私

畑から戻る

 

dawn

parrots on trees

are they verbose?

 

夜明け

木々のオウム

饒舌ですか?

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
