World Haiku Series 2021 (71) Haiku by Manoj Sharma

lockdown
a wind chime sings
all day

June 2021

ロックダウン
風鈴が歌う
一日中

a bumblebee
on the mango blossoms . . .
my carnal desire

April 2021

マルハナバチ
マンゴーの花に
私の世俗的な願望

cold night
two mice break
our silence

December 2021 

寒い夜
2匹のマウスが破る
私たちの沈黙を

haiku reading
the same one-legged crow
again and again

July 2021

俳句を読む
同じ片足のカラス
何回も何回も
    
sunny morning . . .
three sparrows dancing around
a rose blossom

June 2021

晴れた朝
スズメが3羽周りを踊る
バラの花

solitude . . .
the silence is broken
by a dove's cooing
       
March 2021

孤独
沈黙が破られた
鳩の鳴き声で

wave after wave
my mind asks
is any humour available ?

May 2021

波の後に波
私の心が問う
ユーモアはあるの?

autumn ---
a dog weeps piercing
the night silence

November 2021

秋
犬が泣き
夜の沈黙を突き破る

Vishnu temple
a little girl smiles
a welcome

August 2021

ヴィシュヌ寺院
小さな女の子が微笑む
いらっしゃい

pathology report ----
alone I share with the 
murky moon

September 2021

病理レポート
一人で私は分かち合う
曇っている月と

  1. The unusual “haiku reading” stood out for me. Made me wonder about that “one-legged crow” — is it real? Does it appear in multiple haiku during the reading? Or is it perhaps a euphemism for haiku that are lacking something? Interesting!

  2. Thank you very much for your curiosity! This is very real. The same one legged crow still comes to my terrace where I read my haiku for myself!
