Haiku by Vladimir Aktov

 

Hut without roof

Under the first snow

the old man knits Kasa

 

Notes:

Kasa is a Japanese national headdress; Kasa – Korean Medieval Poetry

 

屋根のない小屋。

初雪の下

老人は笠を編む

 

Pacific ocean
The crying seagull hovers
above the surfboard

 

太平洋

鳴いているカモメが止まる

サーフボードの上に

 

The sun behind a cloud

Ripe sunflower

among the meadow grass

 

雲の後ろに太陽

熟したひまわり

牧草地の中で

 

Pine tree on the hill

In the snowbanks near the lake

rotten boat

 

丘の上の松の木

湖の近くの雪の吹きだまりに

腐りかけた船

 

In the cold wind

tramps at the crossroads

Pile of fallen leaves

 

冷たい風の中

交差点での重い足音

落ち葉の山

 

Moon and stars

A bouquet of daisies

in a bucket at the gate

 

月と星

ヒナギクの花束

門のバケツに

 

First snow

Artist paints butterflies

 

初雪

画家が蝶を描く

 

Footpath uphill

Butterfly overtakes pilgrims

 

上り坂の小道

蝶が巡礼者を追い超す

 

The ruins of the hangar

June beetles over the runway

 

格納庫の遺跡

滑走路に6月のカブトムシ

 

Lake under the snow

An old woman on the shore feeds a pair of swans

 

雪の中の湖

湖岸の老婦人が白鳥のペアに餌をやる

 

Cherry Petals on the surface of the pond

It’s starting to rain

 

池の表面に桜の花びら

雨が降り始めている

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta

 

 

Mr. Vladimir Aktov kindly and delightedly presented two haiku by his wife Ms. Tatiana Galankina and her photo for the World Haiku Series 2019.

 

Baby carriage in the park.

The first snowflakes on the faces of sleeping babies

 

公園の乳母車

眠っている赤ちゃんの顔に最初の雪片

 

El Retiro.

And it’s probably snowing again in Moscow.

 

レティーロ公園

そして、おそらくモスクワでは再び雪が降っている。
