World Haiku Series 2019 (183)

Haiku by Valentina Vasilievna Dankova

 

A razor blade

at the lips like a musical album

the sound of harmony

 

かみそりの刃

ミュージカルアルバムのように唇で

調和の音

 

On the table and underneath

creator writes their destiny

to the pot and the vase

 

テーブルの上と下

クリエイターが彼らの運命を書く

鍋と花瓶に

 

Growing through the snow

of my memory

crocus poems

 

雪の中を成長する

私の記憶の

クロッカスの詩

 

Road to yourself

the way to perfection is so long

in loneliness

 

自己実現への道

完成までの道のりはとても長い

孤独の中で

 

Cross, another cross

embroidery of the destiny

for everyone

 

クロス、別のクロス

運命の刺繍

すべての人のために

 

A yellowish envelope

the autumn rust

rots the ties

 

黄色がかった封筒

秋のさび

ネクタイを腐敗させる

 

The wings on

planes of the maples

ready for soft landing

 

カエデの飛行機の

ソフトランディングの準備ができています

   

Arguments grow

in the rich soil

a dispute ahead

 

論争が増える

豊かな土壌で

先の議論

 

A smart defect

hidden in the tenets

of accounting

 

スマートな欠陥

教義に隠されている

会計の

 

Nobody to take it

thus the berry leaves untouched

in the wilderness

 

誰もそれを取らない

したがって、ベリーは手付かずのまま

荒野で

 

— Translated by Alexander Dolin and Hidenori Hiruta
