World Haiku Series 2019 (193)
Haiku by Vladimir Aktov
Hut without roof
Under the first snow
the old man knits Kasa
Kasa is a Japanese national headdress; Kasa – Korean Medieval Poetry
The crying seagull hovers
above the surfboard
The sun behind a cloud
among the meadow grass
Pine tree on the hill
In the snowbanks near the lake
In the cold wind
tramps at the crossroads
Pile of fallen leaves
Moon and stars
A bouquet of daisies
in a bucket at the gate
Artist paints butterflies
Butterfly overtakes pilgrims
The ruins of the hangar
June beetles over the runway
Lake under the snow
An old woman on the shore feeds a pair of swans
Cherry Petals on the surface of the pond
It’s starting to rain
— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
