World Haiku Series 2019 (166)

Haiku by Sanjuktaa Asopa

 

dusk …

the river meanders into

its own murmur

 

Indian kukai #22 , December 2017

 

夕暮れ

川は蛇行する

それ自身のつぶやきの中へ

 

river eddy …

what is it

that I’ve lost

 

R H Blythe haiku contest, 2019

 

川の渦

何ですか

私が失ったものは

 

fireplace logs

the way his promises

crumbled

 

Indian kukai#26, December 2018

 

暖炉の丸太

彼の約束の有り様

無に帰した

 

hopscotch squares …

till the children come back,

the pigeons

 

石蹴り遊びの正方形

子供たちが戻ってくるまでは

ハト

 

crow feather-

before dusk

the feel of dusk

 

The Herons Nest, Vol 16.3, Sept 2014

 

カラスの羽

夕暮れ前

夕暮れの雰囲気

 

dappled light

the pauses

in a junco’s song

 

Modern Haiku, 49.2, 2018   

 

まだらな光

一時停止

ジュンコの歌で

 

falling cherry petals

how gently the world lets go

of light

散る桜の花びら

いかにやさしく世界が解き放つか

光を

 

opening the window

to a moth and what’s left

of the moon

窓を開ける

蛾と残っているものに

月の

 

sipping stale coffee the same sparrow as yesterday

 

A Hundred Gourds, 2.4, 2014

 

古いコーヒーをすすっている昨日と同じスズメ

 

the hush beyond the gunfire olive blossoms

静けさ砲火の向こうオリーブの花

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
