World Haiku Series 2019 (209)

Haiku by Anna Maria Domburg-Sancristoforo

 

lockdown
I try to remember
the smell of hay

 

April 2020

 

ロックダウン

思い出そうとする

干し草の匂いを

 

blooming wisteria
a cloud’s shadow
comes and goes

 

Wales Haiku Journal, Spring 2020

 

花の咲く藤

雲の影

行き来する

 

without a sound
this rain coming
from long ago

 

Asahi Haikuist Network, November 29, 2019

 

音なく

この雨が降って来そう

昔から

 

leaving my heart
a long way behind
ice moon

 

Cattails, October 2019

 

私の心を離れる

背後に長い道

アイスムーン

 

evening
the weight of silence
on the sunflowers

向日葵に宵のしじまの重さかな

 

Honourable mention in the 73rd Basho Contest
October 2019

 

rice grains–
in the round bowl
moonshine

 

Otata, March 2018

 

米粒

丸いボウルに

月光

 

low tide –
not even a message
on my cellphone

 

Femkumag, April 2019

 

干潮

メッセージさえない

私の携帯に

 

rice paddies –
a frog croaking
against the rain

 

A Sense of Place – The Haiku Foundation, September 2018

 

田んぼ

カエルが鳴いている

雨に逆らって

 

stepping stones –
my father teaches me
how to dance

 

Frameless Sky, December 2018

 

飛び石

父が私に教える

踊り方を

 

autumn dawn–
the blues come 
with the piano man

 

The Mainichi, Nov. 21, 2016

 

秋の夜明け–

ブルースが聞こえて来る

ピアノの男と一緒に

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
