World Haiku Series 2020 (7)

Haiku by Arunachalashiva Ravi Sankar 

 

a sugarcane leaf

tries to shade

the mount Annamalai 

 

(Mount Annamalai is a holy mountain in South India and this is my photo haiku )

 

サトウキビの葉

陰を作ろうとする

アンナマライ山に

 

 

game over

reaches to mother’s arm

a baby squirrel 

 

ゲームオーバー

母の腕に達する

赤ちゃんリス

 

your shadow

hides the light

move little away, Buddha

 

あなたの影

光を隠す

少し離れて、仏様

 

tiny temple bell

just before hanging it

a kin

 

小さな寺院の鐘

吊す直前

血族

 

so many decades 

waiting for a haiku

ending with God

 

何十年も

俳句を待っている

神とともに終わる

 

opening time

the temple door swivels

half buddha’s vision

 

開始時間

寺院のドアが回転する

仏の半分の幻影

 

a ray from

the distance mountain

is it from a lamp or divine

 

光線

遠い山からの

ランプからだろうか、それとも神からの

 

a flower drops

on the waterfalls gives

fragrance to water 

 

花が散る

滝に与える

水への香り

 

step by step

flying distance butterfly mingles

with vacuum

 

一歩ずつ

遠くを飛んでいる蝶は混じる

真空に

 

on each step monkeys

after reaching mountain peak

still monkeys

 

ステップ毎にサルが

山頂に達した後

それでもサル

 

Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
