World Haiku Series 2019 (201)

Haiku by Zanka Zana Boskovic Coven 

 

Bare branches dancing…
hedgehog wears a coat to the
autumn symphony

 

裸の枝が踊っている

ハリネズミがコートを着ている

秋の交響曲に合わせて

 

Roots in mud
flowers above the water
clear as tears

 

泥の地下茎

水の上の花

涙のように澄んでいる

 

Ocean dry sand
Like a wave swinging
man and his camel

 

広い乾燥した砂

波のように揺れ動いている

男と彼のラクダ

 

Snowy storm
the shivering lights
new expectation

 

雪の嵐

震えている明り

新しい期待

 

Sunset of gold
captured in tiny net
dies with leaf

 

金色の夕日

小さな網に捕らえられ

葉と共に死ぬ

 

Whiteness of pine tree
shines in full moon light
gems of the night

 

松の木の白さ

満月の光で輝く

夜の宝石

 

Waves dancing
sailor far from home
mom rocks cradle

 

波が踊っている

家から遠く離れた船乗り

ママが揺りかごを揺り動かす

 

A heart of Balkans
under the stardust sky
sleeping city

 

バルカン半島の中心

星屑の空の下

眠っている街

 

Small sunny balls
pieces of tiny warmth
summer in coldness

 

小さな日当たりの良いボール

小さな暖かさの切片

寒さの中の夏

 

Home under the tree
all my belongings there
life with nature

 

木の下の家

そこにある私のすべての所持品

自然と一緒の生活

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
