World Haiku Series 2020 (21)

Haiku by Shanmao

 

Basho’s volume
Wrapped up in green ribbon
New Year’s Eve

 

芭蕉の巻

緑のリボンに結ばれて

大晦日

 

Fragrant tobacco
On her shoulders
Men’s jacket

 

香りのよいタバコの匂い

彼女の肩に

メンズジャケット

 

The last evening of April
On a parking lot
Frayed broom

 

4月の最後の夜

駐車場で

すり切れた箒

 

At grandma’s
So small is
The largest room

 

おばあちゃんの家で

とっても小さい

最大の部屋

 

A shop near subway station
Seller is changing the mask
On a mannequin

 

地下鉄近くの店

売り手がマスクを取り替えている

マネキンの

 

Wind from the sea
In her garden
Dahlias blooms

 

海からの風

彼女の庭で

ダリアが咲く

 

Long long way
A crack on an arm
Of grandma’s doll

 

長い長い道のり

腕にひび

おばあちゃんの人形の

 

Couple of dry straws
That’s all father has got
In a day of fishing

 

乾いたストローの一対

父が得た全て

釣りの日に

 

 

Dreams of winter
Sting to the side
A feather from duvet

 

冬の夢

脇に刺す

羽毛蒲団の羽

 

Snowfall
Catching en route again
Mother’s call

 

降雪

再び路上に降り積もる

母の電話

 

― Translated into Japanese by Hidenori Hiruta

 

Bio:

My name is Elena, I’m 33.

My writing pseudonym is Shanmao.

I’m from Moscow, Russia, working as an archivist, love to spend my free time walking in parks, visiting near and far suburban towns, admiring the beauty of natural and artificial things alike, catching breathtaking moments and sights.
I’m submitting ten of my haiku, all written this year.

I’m also sending my photo, along with some photos of nature scenery, birds and animals.

Photos:

Elena kindly and delightedly presented a few photos to the World Haiku Series 2020.
