World Haiku Series 2020 (73) Haiku by Mu. Murugesh 

Lake filled with 
rain water 
frog's noise doesn't stop

いっぱいの湖
雨水で
カエルの鳴き声が止まらない

Single droplet 
at the tip of the leaf
Lizard sticking out its tongue

一滴
葉の先に
舌を突き出しているトカゲ

Heart breaking 
highway travel
snails in the rainy night

心が痛む
高速道路の旅行
雨の夜のカタツムリ

Turned off the light
blowing by mouth
heat of the light on the lips

明かりを消した
口から吹く
唇の光の熱を

Noisy cries of children
drunken dad enters the yard
silence spread suddenly

子供たちの騒々しい叫び
酔った父さんが庭に入る
沈黙が突然広がる

Mum's photo on the rusty nail
swings in the blowing wind
Smell of incense stick remains

さびた釘のママの写真
吹く風に揺れる
線香の匂いが残る

Huge crowd in the fish market
Knowing the price
pricks as a thorn

魚市場の大群衆
価格を知り
とげとして刺す

Worn out sandals
along with the baby
both sits on the mom's waist

使い古したサンダル
赤ちゃんと一緒に
両方とも母さんの腰に座っている

Rain strings
notify the
tears in the roof

雨の一続き
知らせる
屋根の涙を

Baby's kiss
suddenly moistened
the dried lips

赤ちゃんのキス
突然湿らせた
乾燥した唇を
