World Haiku Series 2020 (48) Haiku by Kaa.Na.Kalyanasundaram 

தானியம் தூவும்/
வேடனின் கைகள்/
வலை விரிக்கும் /

the same hands
that sprinkles grains 
would spread the net

同じ手
穀物をまく
ネットを広げる

ஆற்றில் மூழ்கியபடி/
அடையாளத்தை இழக்கிறது/
உடைந்த பாலம்/

It sinks in the river
losing its identity
the broken bridge

川に沈む
アイデンティティを失う
壊れた橋

பிஞ்சுக் கரங்களின்/
தொடுதலின்றி வாடுகின்றன/
உடைந்த பொம்மைகள்/

they suffer a lot
without touch of tender hands
the broken dolls

とても苦しんでいる
優しい手に触れずに
壊れた人形

ஏணிப்படிகளோடு/
உறவாடி மகிழ்கின்றன/
உயர்ந்த எண்ணங்கள்/

with the ladder steps
they please intimating with relations
great thoughts

はしご段で
関係が親密になる
素晴らしい考え

இலையுதிர்த்தபோதும்/
அசையாத நம்பிக்கையில்/
ஆணி வேர்

despite shedding leaves
it remains in unshakable hope
Tap-root

葉を落としても
揺るぎない希望のまま
主根

இலைகளை உதிர்த்தபடி/
குளக்கரை மரம்/
நீரில் தத்தளிக்கும் எறும்பு

the tree of pond
by shedding leaves
stranded ant in water

池の木
葉を落とすことによって
水中に取り残されたアリ

விழி மூடிய புத்தனின் தியானத்தில் /
நடனமிடுகிறது/
உதிர்ந்த சருகு/

a dry leaf dances
in the meditation of 
buddha with closed eyes.

枯れ葉が舞う
瞑想に
目を閉じた仏陀の。

குடிசையின் மேல் ஏறி/
காய்த்துவிட்டுத் திரும்புகிறது/
சுரைக் கொடி

ascending on a hut
It returns on bearing unripe 
Calabash

小屋に登る
背負って戻る
未熟なひょうたんを

தெருவில் மழை வெள்ளம்/
அணை போடும் சிறுவர்கள்/
ஒதுங்கி நடக்கும் கால்நடைகள்

flash flood in the street
bund building boys
deviating cattle

通りの鉄砲水
堤防を築いている少年たち
牛を逸脱させる

காற்று எதிர்த்தாலும்/ 
சுழன்றபடி முன்னேறுகிறது /
ஓலைக் காற்றாடி

despite wind's resistance
It moves forward rotating
palm leaf hand fan.

風の抵抗にもかかわらず
回転しながら前進する
椰子の葉の手扇子。

குப்பத்து முனியனும் சுப்பனும்/
கோபுர உச்சியில் /
மின்விளக்கு ஏற்பாடுகள்

atop the tower
Muniyan and Subban of fishermen hamlet
Illumination work

塔の上
漁師集落のムニヤンとサブバン
イルミネーション作品

பின்நோக்கி நகரும் மரங்கள்/
பத்திரமாய் இருக்கட்டும்/
சாலையில் நடக்கிறேன்

trees lagging behind
let them be safe
I walk along the road

遅れる木々
安全に運びましょう
私は道を歩く

மழை நேரத்து வயலில்/
மிதக்கும் விதை நெல்/
மகிழ்வில் நீந்தும் வாத்துகள்

in the farmland of rainy time
the floating paddy seeds
ducks swim with pleasure.

梅雨の農地で
浮かんでいる水田の種
アヒルが喜んで泳ぐ。

― Translated into Japanese by Hidenori Hiruta
