Haiku by Kaa.Na.Kalyanasundaram in India (2)

Tamil Haiku

பண்பை வளர்க்கின்றன
ஒற்றையடிப் பாதைகள்

Give up attitude
is developed by
one-foot roads


அடுத்த வேளை
சமையலுக்கு ஏதுமில்லை
சமைந்தாள் மகள்

Nothing is left
for the next cooking
daughter attained puberty


வீசாத வலைக்குள்
சிக்குண்டு தவிக்கிறது
மீனவனின் பசி

Stranded in
an unspread net
Fisherman's hunger


விசைப்படகு வாழ்க்கை

take rest
Invention of motor boats


காற்றின் மொழியோடு
கை குலுக்கி மகிழ்கிறேன்
அருவியின் சாரல்

With the tongue of wind
I take pleasure in shaking hands
waterfall shower


நங்கூரமிட்ட படகினை
தொட்டு ரசிக்கின்றன
மோதும் கடலலைகள்

Dashing sea waves
touch and enjoy
the anchored boat


எருதுகளின் உழைப்பை
எடுத்துக் கூறுகின்றனவோ?
சாட்டைத் தழும்புகள்

Whether the scars of lashes
reveal the labour of
the oxes?


வீசும் தென்றல்
மெல்ல அசைத்துப் பார்க்கிறது
ஆலமரத்து ஊஞ்சல் 

Blowing breeze
shakes gently
the swing of banyan tree


முற்றுப்பெறாது உடைந்த
சிலைகளோடு அமர்ந்திருக்கிறது
சிற்பியின் உளி

The chisel of sculptor
sitting along with unfinished
broken statues


சருகுகளின் சலசலப்பில்
அமைதியாய் பயணிக்கிறது
எனது நிழல்

my shadow,
amidst rustle of dry leaves,
travels calmly


Translated into English by Kaa.Na.Kalyanasundaram
Translated into Japanese by Hidenori Hiruta
