World Haiku Series 2019 (135) Haiku by Neelam Dadhwal

World Haiku Series 2019 (135)

Haiku by Neelam Dadhwal

 

willow’s bush –

the enveloping air

humming the birdsong

 

柳の茂み

包み込む空気

鳥のさえずりをハミング

 

lilies in a pond

after a long while,

I smile at owns reflection

 

池のスイレン

久しぶりに

自分の映った影に微笑む

 

blooming dahlias

by the winter sun,

this yearn to take a long path

 

咲くダリア

冬の太陽の下で

今年は長い道のりを切望する

 

as in nirvana

from the reclining sacred fig

flight of birds at the lake

 

涅槃の状態のように

横たわる神聖なイチジクから

湖での鳥の飛行

 

dragonfly’s flight

in a line of my sight

the yard of autumn daisies

 

トンボの飛行

私の視界の一列で

秋のヒナギクの庭

 

tall grasses along a path

before we set for home

this stride with the evening breeze

 

小道に沿って背の高い草

家に着く前

夕方のそよ風の中のこのひとまたぎ

 

time passes away

tiny fishes spin back

to the shallow waters

 

時間が経つ

小さな魚が逆回転

浅瀬へ

 

lake fog

colored boats lining

the long shore

 

湖の霧

着色されたボートが一列に並ぶ

長い湖畔に

 

leaves fall

for rest of the autumn

this narrow stretch of path

 

葉が落ちる

秋の休息のため

この狭い道の広がり

 

conspicuous birdsong

I start at a diary page with

etched acorns

 

目立つ鳥のさえずり

日記のページを始めます

エッチングされたどんぐりで
