World Haiku Series 2020 (49) Haiku by Kanchan Chatterjee

after
the long whistle . . .
moonlit fields

後
長い笛
月明かりの野原 
 
on the 
still mill owner’s roof also —
hailstones 

上に
静かな製紛場の所有者の屋根も
あられ 
 
among the cold stones
somehow a single lily —
my fifty two years

冷たい石の間
どういうわけか一輪の百合
私の52年間

spring drizzle . . .
the weather app is slow
to upgrade
 
春の霧雨
天気アプリが遅い
格上げへ
 
one hundred and eight
water streams to wash my sins —
end of pilgrimage

百八
私の罪を洗う水の流れ
巡礼の終わり

summer noon . . .
the astrologer yawns 
and spreads my palm

夏の昼.
占星術師はあくびをする
そして私の手のひらを広げる 
 
departing cold . . .
my friend's train arrives
an hour late

遠のく寒さ
友達の電車が到着
1時間遅れ 
 
cold evening . . .
the female mannequin’s
blood - red lips

寒い夕方
女性のマネキン人形の
血のように赤い唇
 
spring breeze . . .
dad refuses another
chemo shot

春風
父さんは別のものを拒否する
化学療法のワクチン接種

zoom meeting —
a large chrysanthemum
at sensei’s back 

ズームミーティング
大きな菊
先生の後ろに
