World Haiku Series 2019 (167)

Haiku by Serhiy Shpychenko

 

dilapidated church
soaring pigeon feather
under the arch

 

老朽化した教会

飛ぶ鳩の羽

アーチの下

 

running ahead
our shadows are lost
in the shadow of poplars

 

先を走る

私たちの影は失われる

ポプラの影に

 

firework
the spider on the thread
appeared for a moment

 

花火

糸の上のクモ

一瞬現れた

 

wedding stir
bubbles of champagne
got tangled in a glass

 

結婚式の騒ぎ

シャンパンの泡

グラスにからまった

 

seafood market
ice eyes
of unsold fish

 

海鮮市場

氷のような目

売れ残りの魚の

 

Christmas morning
finger-drawn heart
on a misted shop window

 

クリスマスの朝

指で描かれたハート

曇った店の窓に

 

fallen leaf
the gold rim of cup
is wiped

 

落ち葉

カップの金の縁

ふき取られる

 

new duty station
tin soldiers
packed for relocation

 

新任駅

おもちゃの兵隊

移転のために送り出された

 

old city
time does not move
on the clock tower

 

旧市街

時間が動かない

時計台

 

penthouse window
the cleanerman washes
the dirt from the sky

 

ペントハウスの窓

掃除夫が洗う

空からのごみを

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
