World Haiku Series 2020 (58) aiku by Madhuri Pillai

twilight dawn
the back porch lit
with white cyclamen 
 
(Modern Haiku, Autumn 2020)

薄明の夜明け
バックポーチが点灯
白いシクラメンと一緒に
 
folded wheelchair
mother’s shoes too big
to fill
 
(Stardust Haiku, Oct 2020)

折り畳まれた車椅子
母の靴が大きすぎる
埋めるのに
 
pruned rose bush
winter’s hush
of introspection
 
(Cattails, Oct 2020)

剪定されたバラの茂み
冬の静けさ
内省の

daphne…
the fragrance
of my solitude
  
(Chrysanthemum, Oct 2020)
 
沈丁花
香り
私の孤独の
 
supermarket car park…
the breeze bereft
of buskers’ tune
 
(Blithe Spirit,  August 2020)
 
スーパーマーケットの駐車場
そよ風が奪った
大道芸人の曲を
 
cherry blossoms
mother’s  baby steps
holding my hand
  
(International Sakura Award 2020)

桜
母さんの赤ちゃんが歩く
私の手を握って
 
leaf filled birdbath 
junk mail spills
from the letterbox 
 
(The Cicada’s Cry, Autumn 2020)

葉で満たされた水盤
迷惑メールがあふれ出る
レターボックスから
 
wafting incense smoke
I touch the smile
on mother’s face
 
(Hedgerow #132 Nov 2020)

お香の煙を漂わせる
笑顔に接する
母の顔に

pandemic
a double rainbow
spans my window
 
( 12th Yamadera  Basho Memorial Museum English Haiku Contest Collection)

パンデミック
二重の虹
私の窓にかかる
 
lengthening days
the blue iris
pauses my steps
 
(Stardust Haiku, August 2020)
 
長くなる日
青いアイリス
私の歩みを一時停止させる
