World Haiku Series 2019 (195)

Haiku by Vladimir Monakhov

 

On my wife’s shelf
Yesterday I saw for the first time
A lifting cream tube.

 

妻の棚の上に

昨日初めて見た

リフティングクリームチューブを

 

My daughter
Forgot her mittens on the bench …
Children precipitate spring!

 

私の娘

ベンチにミトンを忘れた…

子供たちは春を早める!

 

To the sun over the river
Call they from the meadow.
Prisoners of grass.

 

川の向こうの太陽へ

牧草地から彼らは呼び出す

草の囚人を

 

Right to the road
A mushroom came to look at the people.
Oh, this nasty dust!

 

道路の右側に

きのこが人たちを見に来た

ああ、この厄介なほこり!

 

Digging a grave.
Oh, something pricked me in the belly.
The call of the earth!

 

墓を掘る

ああ、お腹に何かちくりと刺された

地球の呼び声!

 

The night sky
So abundant with stars.
To the top of the garden.

 

夜空

星がとっても豊富

庭のてっぺんに

 

An autumn leave
In the hands of a merry girl
Kept living and living and living…

 

秋の一葉

陽気な女の子の手に

生き続け、生き続け、生き続けた…

 

In the vessels
Where fish used to play
In the morning splashes the fish of silence.

 

船の中

かって魚が遊んだ所

朝には沈黙の魚が跳びこむ

 

In the forlorn garden
Thoughts of the grass
Are smashed by heavy apples.

 

見捨てられた庭で

草の想いが

重いリンゴに砕かれる

 

Under the traffic light
In the first winter puddle
There is still a lot of green.

 

信号の下

最初の冬の水たまりに

緑はまだまだたくさん残っている

 

— Translated by Alexander Dolin and Hidenori Hiruta
