World Haiku Series 2019 (165)

Haiku by Samo Kreutz

 

Stop of the train

Among a pile of luggage

the outgoing dawn

 

電車の停車

山のような荷物の中に

去って行く夜明け

 

Curved tree

From the nest between branches

the sun takes wing

 

湾曲した木

枝の間の巣から

太陽が羽ばたく

 

Colourful stroller

The calm rest of a baby and

the scent of grass

 

カラフルなベビーカー

赤ちゃんの穏やかな休息と

草の香り

 

Cleaned up quarter

Bush without any rubbish                        

just boring

 

街をクリーンアップ

ごみのないブッシュ

ただ退屈

 

Ljubljanica river bank

Walking with the tourists

a bitter crying

 

リュブリャニツア川の岸

観光客と一緒に歩く

辛い泣き声

 

Tempting smell of food

Before a skyscraper

the voice of a hungry cat

 

食欲をそそる食べ物の香り

超高層ビルの前

空腹の猫の声

 

Sudden shower

Together penetrating the air

drops and shouts

 

突然のにわか雨

一緒に空気を貫通する

滴と叫び声

 

Love without borders

Stuck to the daisy

a big snail

 

国境なき愛

デイジーにしがみつく

大きなカタツムリ

 

Trunk on the ground

Its projecting roots

in mossy slippers

 

地面の幹

その突き出た根

苔むしたスリッパに

 

Pale beam of light

On a dull pavement

flowering shadows

 

淡い光の光線

くすんだ舗装の上に

花が咲いているような影

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
