World Haiku Series 2020 (53) Haiku by Lan Diep

October 12, 2020. Ms. Lan Diep sent her email, saying as follows.

Thank you Hidenori 

I am deeply sad for the people who have suffered in Akita. and also for your worries every day in this pandemic. I hope soon that it will be safe again for everyone...
I will send you two emails with 5 of my latest haikus so that it does not take up too much data.
Some of my haikus are about the pandemic - I hope the feelings and mood of the pandemic can be experienced by people reading them. 
Take care and be well

Warmly
Lan

OBSERVE DRIFTING CLOUDS

FORMS APPEAR AND DISAPPEAR

SEEING IS HEARTBREAK

漂う雲を観察する

形は現れたり、消えたり

見るのは痛ましい

Listening Deeply

Sounds of the Australian Bush

The End of Birdsongs

深く聞く

オーストラリアの茂みの音

鳥のさえずりの終わり

Our hearts distracted

Bitterness accumulates

Chaos emerges

私たちの心は取り乱された

苦しみがたまる

大混乱となる

Long before our lives

Ten thousand things are still one

A sunset promise

私たちの人生のずっと前

1万もの物はまだ1つ

日没の約束

How can we feel safe?

As the waves are collapsing

Into the ocean

どうすれば安全だと感じられる?

波が壊れ

海中に崩れる時

UNEXPECTEDLY

HOW PROFOUND IS THE MUNDANE

GAPS BETWEEN BRANCHES

意外にも

ありふれたものがどれほど深遠か

枝と枝の間のすき間

a perennial

magnolias evolve

the calamities

多年草

マグノリアは進化する

災害から

three thousand lifetimes

its as if we’ve never met

the goodwill of Spring

3000の生涯

会ったことがないかのように

春の善意に

With you I observe

flowers flourish and wither

a timeless seeing

あなたと私は観察する

花が栄え、枯れるのを

時代を超越した見解

From my palm

In ten directions

This is Self

私の手のひらから

10の方向に

これが自分自身です

― Translated into Japanese by Hidenori Hiruta
