World Haiku Series 2020 (35) Haiku by Goutam Dutta

Sunrise opposite hills

Orange glow on fallen snow-

A tired sentry yawns.

丘の反対側の日の出

降った雪にオレンジ色の輝き

疲れた歩哨があくびをする

Sprouts of dawn’s light

Dark clouds suddenly roll in-

Darkness again.

夜明けの光の芽

暗い雲が突然漂ってくる

再び闇

Poor woman’s winter-

In her thoughts, the warmth of fire

Fallen leaves she thanks.

貧しい女の冬

彼女の考えに火の暖かさ

落ち葉に彼女は感謝する

Spring season

Passion in the air-

Red hues of gulmohar.

春の季節

空中の情熱

ガルモハールの赤い色合い

Clouds come floating

Dispelling gloom-

Farmers till the land.

雲が浮かんでくる

憂鬱を払拭する

農民は土地を耕す 

Mountain roads

We travel through them-

In our memories.

山道

私たちはそこを通って旅をする

記憶の中で

Never ending argument

Over seniority-

Twins.

決して終わらない議論

年長について

双子

Piece of pale blue sky…

Hanging from a tree

A torn Kite.

淡い青空のかけら

木からぶら下がっている

破れた凧

Inside tiny heads

Journey mapped out perfectly-

Migrating birds.

小さな頭の中

旅は完璧に計画された

渡り鳥

Hill at the horizon-

Descending clouds

Embrace and whisper.

地平線の丘

降りてくる雲

抱きしめてささやく

― Translated into Japanese by Hidenori Hiruta
