World Haiku Series 2020 (78) Haiku by Nastya Babkina 

leaf by leaf
forest goes up 
into the sky

葉ごと
森が上がっていく
空に 

close the capm
colchicum flowers stay
on mountainsides

キャップを閉じる
コルチカムの花はとどまる
山腹に  

praying mantis
sways on the breakwater ..
flat calm 

カマキリ
防波堤で揺れる
断固として落ち着く

inkpot
shadows of grass
fall on the paper 

インクポット
草の影
紙に落ちる 

summer river
diving into
carefree childhood

夏の川
飛び込む
楽しい子供時代

traffic jam... 
Radiohighway
frozen Wave

交通渋滞
ラジオハイウェイ
凍った波  

raven on the branch,
keep an eye on things
while I'm swimming 

枝のカラス、
物に目を離さない
私が泳いでいる間 

curl up with blanket
november dusk lifting 
with a great reluctance 

毛布で丸くなる
11月の夕暮れのリフティング
非常に気が進まない

young forever
rooster crows
all night long

永遠に若い
オンドリが鳴く
一晩中

under protection 
of kelp forest
depth of loneliness

保護下
海藻の森
孤独の深さ
