World Haiku Series 2019 (192)

Haiku by Viviane C. M. Leite

 

Spring gathering

I walk into

fresh rain scents

 

春の集い

私は歩いて入る

新鮮な雨の香りの中に

 

sunrise

everybody is wearing

a coat of dew

 

日の出

誰もが身につけている

露のコートを

 

the music stopped

we now enjoy

the falling rain

 

音楽が止まった

私たちは今楽しむ

降る雨を

 

hateful weeds

I need to elect

sharper tools

 

嫌な雑草

私は選ぶ必要がある

よりシャープなツールを

 

school break

children unleashed 

colorful kites

 

学校の休憩

子供たちが綱を解いた

カラフルな凧

 

cracks

in the frozen stream

the Spring awakes

 

ひび割れ

凍った流れの中に

春が目覚める

 

wind on the grass

I brush her hair

one last time

 

草の上の風

私は彼女の髪にブラシをかける

最後にもう一度

 

top of the mountain

the sun knows nothing about

soreness

 

山の頂上

太陽は何も知らない

痛みについて

 

love remains

a fierce pain in a limb

severed long ago

 

愛は残る

脚の激しい痛み

ずっと前に切断された

 

morning news

reading the weather forecast

in my joints

 

朝のニュース

天気予報を読む

私の関節で

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
