World Haiku Series 2020 (39) Haiku by Hidenori Hiruta

In the breeze

a wanderer reaching

the Jizō Pass

風薫る地蔵峠に辿り着く

Jizō

giving a welcome

in the breeze

薫風や我を迎へる地蔵尊

Something audible

praying in the breeze

on the summit

薫風に祈りの混じる山の上

Buddha

wearing a mask

at zazen

釈迦如来マスク姿の座禅かな

The Six Jizō

standing on the Six Paths

with a mask on

マスクかけ六道に立つ六地蔵

The Jizō

protecting babies

with a mask on

児等守るマスク姿の地蔵尊

Tatsuko-hime

living in the breeze

the dragon god

薫風や竜神生るる御座の石

Through thatch ring

chanting, and praying

for good health

神前の茅の輪をくぐり拝しけり

Through thatch ring

praying for no COVID-19

on the earth

コロナ禍を越えむと茅の輪くぐりけり

Adonises

illumining the graveyard

in Kisakata

象潟の野辺を彩る福寿草
