World Haiku Series 2020 (106) Haiku by Lakshmi Iyer

🌸🌸

Hiroshima day
the memories unfold
in the fallen blooms

広島の日
思い出が広がる
落花の中で

🌸🌸

day dreaming
in father's loud laughter
i cuddle up

空想中
父の大笑いに
私は寄り添う

🌸🌸

joining dots
from one to twenty
a meandering train

ドットを結合する
1から20まで
曲がりくねった電車

🌸🌸

circus stand
the child takes a balloon dog
for a walk

サーカススタンド
子供が気球犬を連れて行く
散歩に

🌸🌸

pergola
moonlight finds a place
to rest

パーゴラ
月光が場所を見つける
休むため

🌸🌸

Ganga arati
on the banks of Haridwar
another starlit sky

ガンガ川のアラティ
ハリドワールの岸に
別の星空

🌸🌸

air show
right hand on my sunglasses
the left on my hat

航空ショー
私のサングラスには右手
帽子には左手

🌸🌸

half-open eyed
Buddha looks at me
looking at him

半開きの目で
仏陀は私を見る
彼を見ながら

🌸🌸

newspaper kite
the obituary page
now closer to heaven

新聞凧
死亡記事のページ
今天国に近い

🌸🌸

mother gathers
a spoonful of stars ...
autumn light

母が集める
スプーン一杯の星を
秋の光

🌸🌸
