World Haiku Series 2019 (147)

Haiku by Paweł Markiewicz

 

weird of afterglow
pearler singing song of moon
breaks sea-solitude

 

夕焼の運命

真珠の採取者が月の歌を歌っている

海の孤独を破る

 

matutinal sun
keel swimming to new island
laden with the pearls

 

朝の太陽

船が新しい島に滑るように進む

真珠をどっさり積み込んで

 

under summer moon
a pearl in dreamy gull’s beak
marine wizardry

 

夏の月の下

夢のようなカモメのくちばしの中に真珠

海の妙技

 

when the tide is out
pearl diver is fetching pearls
from sunken vessel

 

潮が引いているとき

パールダイバーは真珠を取って来ます

沈没船から

 

the morning red sky
the pearl diver on board ship
singing ferrymen’s ayres

ayre = Br. archaic = lay

 

朝焼けの空

船に乗ったパールダイバー

フェリーマンの歌を歌う

 

seaweed under sea
with the most propitious pearls
hidden by seaman

 

海藻

最も好都合な真珠と一緒に

船員によって隠される

 

seven hundred miles
from home but a dreamy stork
our rumination

 

700マイル

家からですが、夢のようなコウノトリ

私たちの反すう

 

silence of morning
a flock of storks sitting
on beloved camping

 

朝の沈黙

コウノトリの群れが座っている

最愛のキャンプに

 

dew and dawn-miracle
one stork having sat down
eating the dog’s food

 

露と夜明けの奇跡

一羽のコウノトリが座っていた

犬の食べ物を食べながら

 

a herd of storks
Japanese she-tourist
watching them dreaming

 

コウノトリの群れ

日本の女性観光客

彼らが夢を見ているのを見ている

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
