World Haiku Series 2019 (164)

Haiku by R. Suresh Babu

 

rain clouds…

red yellow umbrellas

mushrooming

 

雨雲

赤や黄色の傘

きのこのように開く

 

pink blossoms…

cheeks flushing red

his first kiss

 

ピンクの花

頬が赤く紅潮する

彼の最初のキス

 

autumn fall…

red and orange

magic hues

 

秋の秋

赤とオレンジ

魔法のような色合い

 

tyrant’s statue

dove cooing peace songs

in mute ears

 

暴君の像

鳩が平和の歌を甘くささやく

ものが言えない耳に

 

fallen leaves

her hair fall

after chemotherapy

 

落ち葉

彼女の髪が落ちる

化学療法の後

 

white rose

baby girl white

peace day

 

白いバラ

女の赤ちゃんの白さ

平穏の日

 

old farmer

looking for wet seeds

to feed his hunger

 

年老いた農夫

濡れた種子を探している

空腹を満たすため

 

last day at school

the old school teacher

cleaning his creaking table

 

学校の最終日

年老いた学校の先生

うまく動かないテーブルを掃除している

 

in the teary eyes

of an orphan child

his mother’s parting smile

 

涙に溢れた目に

孤児の子供の

母の別れの笑顔

 

baby’s smile

ripples of happiness

in her womb

 

赤ちゃんの微笑み

幸せの波紋

彼女の子宮の中で

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta

  1. A big question mark
    In every body’s eyes
    I smiled for
    The world as such is
    A big ?

  2. Simply beautiful. This cant be more beautiful n expreesive than this. Some brought smile on lips , some tears in eyes n one could still make a woman blush.
