World Haiku Seriese 2019 (211)

Haiku by Giuliana Ravaglia

 

solstice –

so clear the shadow

of the evening

 

至点

とても鮮やか

夕方の影

 

moonless

paths at night –

the jasmines

 

月の出てない

夜の小道

ジャスミン

 

cornflowers –
how close the sky is

when I look at you

 

ヤグルマギク

空がなんて近いの

あなたを見るとき

 

last trip –

a butterfly

in my room

 

最後の旅

私の部屋に

 

the wind cuts

red poppies –

stand by me

 

風が切る

赤いケシの花を

スタンド・バイ・ミー

 

yellow forest –
the fugitive light
of summer

 

黄色い森

変わりやすい光

夏の

 

empty cup –

no cry

in my womb

 

空のカップ

泣き声はない

私の子宮の中で

 

lockdown –

so far away

in the same house

 

ロックダウン

あまりにも遠く離れている

同じ家の中で

 

first mirror –

my mother’s eyes

 

最初の鏡

母の目

 

short night –

rhythm of the waves

so far away

 

短い夜

波のリズム

とっても遠く離れたところに

 

— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
