World Haiku Series 2019 (145)

Haiku by Paul White

 

Walking the city

Meditating with each step

Pathways of reflection.

 

街を歩く

一歩毎に瞑想しながら

反省の経路。

 

 

Silver steel surface

Reflecting our passing by

Static fluidity seen

 

銀色の鋼表面

通りすがりの反映

静的な流動が見られる

 

 

Darkness of sky above

Bright Yellow light reflecting

The full moon rises

 

上空の闇

明るい黄色の光が反射している

満月がのぼる

 

 

Aeolus opened his stable

Notus rides from the south

Destroyer of crops

 

アイオロスが厩舎を開きました

ノトスが南から乗る

作物の破壊物

 

 

Chill air and icy rain

Wet pavements refracting light

Elemental city art

 

寒気と氷の雨

湿った舗装が光を屈折させている

初歩的なシティアート

 

 

Dark brown naked earth

Young green shoots rising firmly up

Spring is upon us

 

濃い褐色の裸の土

若い緑の芽がしっかりと発生している

春が来た

 

 

I is not just me

I is who you are as well

I is both of us

 

私は私だけじゃない

私はあなたでもある

私は私たち二人です

 

Pebbles laying firm

Clear waters flowing onwards

Look into the stream

 

小石がしっかりと澄んだ水を先へ流れさせている

流れを覗いてごらん

 

 

Grey-blue towers high

Salt air and thunder crash

Waves of the tempest

 

灰色がかった青の塔が高くに

塩っぽい空気と雷の轟き

暴風雨の波

 

 

Poem for Akita

Your invite an honour

Forever grateful

 

秋田のための詩

ご招待を光栄に存じます

永遠に感謝

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta

 

My Bio.

My name is Paul White.

I live in the county of East Yorkshire in the UK, often called ‘God’s County’ because of its rugged beauty.

I am an author of fiction & non-fiction. A common topic running through my stories is that of life, of love, happiness, laughter, anger, anguish, fear, uncertainty, pain and loss.

When I am not at home or tending my garden, you will find me travelling, with my wife, to remote locations somewhere around the world and taking photographs of breath-taking scenery.

As for myself… I have a warped sense of humour, I love good food, good wine and great company. I am an ardent independent traveller, a nature lover and supporter of ecological and wildlife preservation.
