World Haiku Series 2021 (42) Haiku by Padmasiri Jayathilaka

Picking up basil seeds 
on her 
red lips

バジルの種を拾う
彼女の
赤い唇に

Spiral of moths
Street lamp 
flickers and flickers

蛾の渦巻き
街灯
明滅が続く
                                               
Flying so high
your shadow
upon the earth

とても高く飛ぶ
あなたの影
地上に

I held my breathe
to hear the 
still of the autumn forest

息を止めた
聞くために
秋の森の静けさを
           
Drizzle,
Campfire hisses and crackles
Stars aloft

霧雨、
キャンプファイヤーがシューとそしてパチパチ音を立てる
上には星

Perfume thronged
The lift cabin
speeding up

香りが群がった
リフトキャビンが
スピードを上げる

Ripples,
when I tried to
feel the moon

さざ波、
月を
感じようとしたとき

Scribbles on the
kindergarten sand
A lightning flesh

落書き
幼稚園の砂に
稲妻のフレッシュ

Sunlight disperse colors 
through the
wings of dragonfly

日光が色を分散させる
トンボの翅を
通して
                                                
Clouds gather
Frogs clear their throats
Dried drains

雲が集まる
カエルが喉をすっきりさせる
乾燥したドレイン

― Translated into Japanese by Hidenori Hiruta
