World Haiku Series 2019 (117)  

Haiku by Mark Miller

 

breaking light

the pale vibrato

of cherry blossoms

 

Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festivals 2013 Sakura Award

 

速報

桜の花の淡いビブラート

 

 

mountain mist

the path neither before

nor after

 

山の霧

小道は前にも後ろにもない

 

stepping from the cab

at the hospital gates

autumn rain

 

タクシーから降りる

病院の門で

秋の雨

 

owl’s swoop

sliced in two

the crescent moon

 

フクロウの急降下

二つに三日月をスライス

 

wild mushrooms

easily enough for two

in the widow’s basket

 

野生のキノコ

二つで十分

未亡人のかごの中

salted wind

all the plastics the tide

gives us back

 

塩風

潮が返すすべてのプラスチック

 

water beads

stretching leaf to leaf

spider’s silk

 

水玉

葉を伸ばす

クモの絹

 

blurring the words

this ladybird

on my page

 

言葉をぼかす

このテントウムシ

私のページで

ebb tide

fading to stony blandness

the reef-crab

 

干潮

石のつまらなさへ衰退

リーフクラブ

 

deepening dusk

harbour yachts moored

to the silence

 

深まる夕暮れ

係留された港のヨット

沈黙へ

daylight breaking –

origami of a white egret

takes flight

 

日光を遮断ー

白鷺の折り紙

飛び立つ
