Haiku by Bakhtiyar Amini

 

light rain
I can not remember
your name

Blithe Spirit



小雨

思い出せない

あなたの名前

 

sharing watermelon
your half redder
than mine

The Mamba



西瓜を分け合う

あなたの半分は赤い

私のより

 

a romantic supper
the moon is crawling slowly
from my plate to yours

Modern Haiku

 

ロマンチックな夕食

月がゆっくり進む

私の皿からあなたの皿へ

 

night catch
in a fisherman’s net-
full moon

The Mainachi 

 

夜の捕獲

漁師の網で

満月

 

opening the parcel
filling the room
the homeland fragrance

Wales Haiku Journal

 

小包を開ける

部屋に一杯

祖国の香り

 

a prisoner –
his CV
is tattooed

Frogpond 

 

囚人

彼の履歴書

入れ墨されている

 

yin and yang
the black shadow of
a white dress

The Haiku Foundation 

 

陰と陽

黒い影

白いドレスの

 

world map
a fly choosing
my country

The Heron’s Nest



世界地図

蝿が選ぶ

私の国を

 

kissing
on her collarbone
my initials

Failed Haiku 

 

キス

彼女の鎖骨に

私の頭文字

 

plum blossoms
I’ll burst, if I keep quiet
plum blossoms

Presence

 

梅の花

抑えきれなくなる、静かにしていると

梅の花
