Book Presentation! “NIGHT JASMINE” by Goran Gatalica in Croatia (3)

Selected haiku poems in Croatian were translated into 6 languages: English, French, Italian, Czech, Hindi and Japanese.


Haiku poems are as follows:

hodočašće –
latice trešnje padaju
na majčine sandale


pilgrimage –
cherry petals fall
on my mother’s sandals

pèlerinage –
des pétales de cerisier tombent
sur les sandales de ma mère

pellegrinaggio –
cadono petali di ciliegio
sui sandali di mia madre

pouť –
třešňové květy padají
na matčiny sandály

तीर्थयात्रा –
चेरी की पंखुड़ियाँ गिर रही हैं
मेरी माँ की सैंडल पर

巡礼
桜の花びらが散る
母のサンダルに

hodočašće / pilgrimage: Haiku Moment Award, The Best of Autumn Moon Haiku Journal (Volume 1:1 and 1:2), 2018

nakon majčine smrti –
pronalazim istinsku sreću
u cvjetovima trešnje

after mother’s death –
I find true happiness
in cherry blossoms

après la mort de ma mère –
découvrant le vrai bonheur
dans les fleurs de cerisier

dopo la morte della madre –
trovo la vera felicità
nei fiori di ciliegio

po smrti matky –
nacházím skutečné štěstí
v třešňových květech

माँ की मृत्यु के बाद –
मुझे मिली सच्ची खुशी
चेरी के फूलों में

母の死後
真の幸福を見出す
桜の花に

nakon majčine smrti / after mother’s death: The Awakened One Anthology, Poetry Chaikhana, 2021

razmišljajući o ratu –
zarobljen u bodljikavoj žici
leptir

thinking of war –
trapped in barbed wire
a butterfly

pensant à la guerre –
pris dans les barbelés
un papillon

pensando alla guerra –
una farfalla intrappolata
nel filo spinato

v myšlenkách o válce –
spoutaný v ostnatém drátu
motýl

युद्ध के विचार –
कंटीले तारों में फंसी
एक तितली

戦争を思う
有刺鉄線に囚われの


razmišljajući o ratu / thinking of war: nagrada Basho / Basho-an Award, 1st Basho-an International English Haiku Competition, Tokyo, Japan, 2018

noćni jasmin –
njena procvala duša nosi vodu
izbjeglici

night jasmine –
her bloomed soul brings water
to a refugee

jasmin de nuit –
son âme fleurie porte de l’eau
à un réfugié

gelsomino notturno –
la sua anima fiorita porta acqua
a un rifugiato

noční jasmín –
její rozkvetlá duše nese vodu
uprchlíkovi

रात की रानी –
उसकी खिली आत्मा पानी ला रही है
शरणार्थी के लिए

夜のジャスミン
彼女の開花した魂は水をもたらす
難民に

noćni jasmin / night jasmine: nagrada Basho / Basho-an Award, 2nd Basho-an International English Haiku Competition, Tokyo, Japan, 2019
