World Haiku Series 2020 (93) Haiku by Subir Ningthouja

that muted shape
amidst the fog ...
is it me?

その落ち着いた形
霧の中で...
私ですか?

the mist ...
shows and hides
like hazy remembrances

靄
表示と非表示
ぼんやりとした記憶のように

the sea
in your eyes ...
where do I anchor

海
あなたの目で 
どこに投錨しますか

the last gaze
before leaving
faraway destination

最後の視線
出発前に
遠い目的地 

the song of spring water 
has muted ...
winter walks in slowly

湧き水の歌
ミュートしました
冬はゆっくりと歩く 

clouds and trees 
glance askance -
autumn is ending

雲と木
横目で質問
秋が終わる

the sun
amidst swirling mist ...
she plays with her veil 

太陽
渦巻く靄の中で
彼女はベールで遊ぶ

a lone bird
this wintry morning 
longs for the sun

孤独な鳥
この冬の朝
太陽を切望する

I see muted figures
pace the lonesome station
this restless night

落ち着いた姿が見える
寂しい駅を行ったり来たりするのを
この落ち着きのない夜

― Translated into Japanese by Hidenori Hiruta
