World Haiku Series 2020 (59) Haiku by Manoj Sharma 

mid-day nap
on my back 
a tepid sun 

昼寝
私の背中に
ぬるい太陽
        
crowded bus ---
a baby smiles 
from mother's lap

混雑したバス
赤ちゃんの笑顔
母親の膝から
       
empty days . . .
stars filling up 
my soul 

空しい日々
星が満たしてくれる
私の心を

evening rain . . .
shelter to shelter 
on the riverbank

夕方の雨
避難所から避難所へ
川岸に

open-air cafe 
a crow emerges 
from the kitchen

オープンエアカフェ
烏が出て来る
キッチンから

distancing . . .
a maskless shadow 
lengthening behind 

遠ざかる
マスクをつけていない影
後ろに伸びる
         
Buddha's Birthplace 
even the sky appears 
more blue

仏陀の生誕地
空でさえ
青が濃い
 
pandemic season 
his face 
out of mask

パンデミックの時期
彼の顔
マスクから 

looking up
at the deep blue sky ---
autumn blue 

見上げる
真っ青な空を
秋の青

summer rain 
beneath the bushes 
a blooming rose 

夏の雨
茂みの下
花咲くバラ

― Translated into Japanese by7 Hidenori Hiruta
