World Haiku Series 2019 (176)

Haiku by Stoianka Boianova

 

feeling of homeland

roads through mountains

on the horizon

 

祖国の感じ

山を抜ける道路

地平線に

 

tops under the stars

heirs of  Orpheus picking roses

in fragrant valleys

 

星空の下の頂

バラを摘むオルフェウスの相続人

香りの良い谷間に

 

dew in the flowers
in every drop I can see
the image of God

 

花の露

目に見えるすべての滴に

神のイメージ

 

on my hand

a white butterfly

bigger than a cloud

 

私の手に

白い蝶

雲より大きい

 

a cat on the roof

under its curved back

a new moon

 

屋根の上の猫

曲がった背中の下に

新月

 

river pebble

no one remembers

its sharpened edges

 

川の小石

誰も覚えていない

その鋭利な端を

 

much grains of sand

their embraces create

peaks of mountains

 

砂の多くの粒

その包囲が創り出す

山の峰々を

 

firefly glowing

on the window at night

a greeting from mum

 

蛍が光を放っている

夜の窓に

ママからの挨拶

 

ants at sunrise

under the star clusters

a man on the road

 

日の出のアリ

星団の下に

道路上の男

 

freedom of flight 
the snowflake chooses its way 
from heaven to earth

 

飛行の自由

雪片が道を選ぶ

天から地へ

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
