Haiku by Rosa Maria Di Salvatore

 

rough sea…
the taste of salt
on my lips

 

荒海

塩の味

私の唇に

 

sunrise…
the pink
of her cheeks

 

日の出

ピンクの色

彼女の頬の

 

the smile
I wear…
poppies

 

笑顔

私は浮かべている

ケシの花

 

flowers
blooming…
youth

 

咲いている

若さ

 

the joy
in his eyes…
true love

 

喜び

彼の目に

真実の恋

 

a desire…
daisy
petals

 

欲望

デージー

花びら

 

sunset…
painting my lips
red

 

夕焼け

私の唇を描く

赤に

 

shorts and shirt…
a girl runs
towards summer

 

短パンとシャツ

女の子が走る

夏に向かって

 

spring hailstorm…
a carpet
of rose petals

 

春のあられの嵐

カーペット

バラの花びらの

 

a thin rain
outside the window…
smell of autumn

 

薄雨

窓の外

秋の香り

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
