World Haiku Series 2019 (115)

Haiku by Marina Bellini

 

I place you

on the last flower

dying butterfly

 

私はあなたを置きます

最後の花に

瀕死の蝶

 

All Souls’ Day

a girl leaves a flower

on a forgotten grave

 

全ての霊魂の日

女の子が花を残す

忘れられた墓の上

 

village market

the winter eggs

white and small

 

村の市場

冬の卵

白くて小さい

 

a run on the lawn

blow balls
become wind

 

芝生の上を走る

ブローボール

風になる

 

peach blooms

my Jack Russell chases

a crow’s shadow

 

桃の花

ジャックラッセルが追う

カラスの影を

 

Father’s Day—

the branch and the one cut-down

have blossomed all at once

 

父の日-

枝とその一つ切り

一斉に開花した

 

hail

a green tomato

in the puddle

 

緑のトマト

水たまりに

 

heavy rain

a migrant rides his bike

back from the field

 

大雨

移民が自転車に乗る

畑から戻る

 

evening fog

a white and ginger cat

stares into the void

 

夕霧

白と赤毛色の猫

虚空を見つめる

 

everything slows down

only sun roots

rise tall

 

すべてが遅くなる

太陽のルーツのみ

高く登る

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
