Haiku by Mitsunari Masyo

 

 

SPRING

 

the night sky. …May

herder month young

caresses manes

 

夜空。 …五月

遊牧民の若者がたてがみを優しくなでる

 

the nights of May

moonlit path in the grass

placer of lilies of valley

 

5月の夜

草の中の月明かりに照らされた道

谷間のユリの砂金鉱床

 

May ends

all day long under willow

a flock of fry play

 

5月が終わる

柳の下で一日中

稚魚遊びの群れ

 

first thunder in life

for my baby daughter

and these little leaves

 

人生初の雷

私の赤ん坊の娘にとって

そして、これらの小さな葉

 

 

SUMMER

 

tenderness of irises

white and purple sleeve

hides a snail

 

アイリスの優しさ

白と紫の袖

カタツムリを隠す

 

the cat got lost

there by the fence wall

chicory blooms

 

猫は迷子になった

フェンスの壁のそばで

チコリの花が咲いている

 

empty the coast

I’m basking at the old boat

sides in a shell

 

海岸を空にする

私は古いボートで寝そべっている

シェルの側面

 

the sea is getting dark

light from tears of amber

pines’ eyes

 

海が暗くなってきている

琥珀の涙からの光

松の目

 

 

AUTUMN

 

have not noticed

how beautiful you are without leaves

in a maple dream

 

気づいていない

あなたは葉っぱなしでどれほど美しいかに

もみじの夢の中で

 

 

 

 

WINTER

 

waiting by bay

but tenderness of delicate fingers

the wind owns

 

湾で待っている

繊細な指の優しさ

風が所有する

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta

 

Mitsunari Masyo

 

 

 

 

 

about the author

***

the sky is getting warmer

morning grass

in countless dews

the last rider in the light

under the banner in the white stars

 

Here is one ink painting of ume kindly and delightedly presented for the World Haiku Series 2019.
