World Haiku Series 2019 (108)

Haiku by Manoj Sharma 

 

             reciting in front 
             of my mother…
              a new haiku

 

           母の前で朗読する…

                新しい俳句

 

             winter holiday –
          I sense my son’s worry
            a passport

               

                  冬休みー

           息子の心配を感じる

                 パスポート

 

              yellow horizon –
                gazing after
        a disappearing aeroplane

 

      黄色の地平線ー

                見つめる

           消える飛行機を

 

              round and round
              over a dry river …
             an eagle’s quest

 

                 グルグルと

             乾いた川の上を…

                 ワシの探求

   

              longer night –
           the moon appears
             for a while

 

    長くなった夜ー

             月が現れる

         しばらくの間

 

              a rainy day –
        colour of mountains
             In silhouette

 

                雨の日ー

             山の色

            シルエットに

 

           trapped inside …
      a pink rose blossoms
         in the maize field

 

       中に閉じ込められた…

       ピンクのバラの花

       トウモロコシ畑で

 

          evening prayer . . .
          the moon settles
           onto the river 

 

             夜の祈り…

           月が落ち着く

              川の上へ

 

            deserted pond –
         the ripples behind 
         a flock of ducks

 

            捨てられた池ー

     カモの群れの後にさざ波

 

              fragrance 
       all over the village –
         mango blossoms 

 

                香り

             村中にー

       マンゴーの花
