World Haiku Series 2019 (128)

Haiku by Munia Khan

 

coma –

only the movement

of heart

 

昏睡 –

心臓の動きだけ

 

winter trees-

frozen memories

of the numb war

 

冬の木ー

無感覚になった戦争の凍った記憶

 

teardrops…

wish we could count

the pain

 

涙の滴…

痛みを数えられればいいのに

 

wounded sparrow –

she opens

the window wider

 

傷ついたスズメ ―

彼女は窓を広く開ける

 

my daughter’s smile…

now I know

what keeps me alive

 

娘の笑顔…

今私は知っている

私を生かし続けるものを

 

homelessness…

those veterans are tired

of the stars

 

ホームレス…

あの退役軍人たちは星形の勲章に疲れている

 

somnambulist –
he fastens the seat-belt
to sleep in his car

 

夢遊病者 ―

彼は車の中で寝るためにシートベルトを締める

 

night-long lament…

her only escort

a hooting owl

 

夜通しの悲嘆…

彼女の唯一の付き添い

ホーホーと鳴くフクロウ

 

rainbow:
multicolored smile
upside down

 

虹:

多色の微笑み

さかさま

 

Neither a dragon
nor ever a fly
dragonfly

 

竜でもない

ハエでもない

トンボです

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
