Haiku by Ram Krishna Singh, India : JapaneseTranslations by Rika Inami 稲美 里佳    

Akita International Haiku Network

Haiku: Ram Krishna Singh, India    

Translation: Rika Inami 稲美 里佳

1

sea waves

roll from far away

white peaks

浦波や遠白き峰より寄する

2

travelling back

from the waves of bliss

a foam-leap

波の花 至福の高まりからの旅帰り

3

cloud over cloud

darken earth and hide stars:

dawn and dust one

雲に雲 地を闇にし星をさえぎり夜明にちり一つ

4

a crescent

in the western horizon–

missing the moon

西空に沈む三日月や….月恋ほし

5

hangs with breath

the knotted pain

in the chest

息づけば胸にもつれた痛みあり

6

alone on the platform

wait for the train

swatting mosquitoes

蚊を叩きプラットフォームに独り電車待つ

7

the village pond–

waiting for her arrival with

a baited hook

村の池…

餌付きの鉤持ち

彼女の到着を待つ

8

on a cycle

he sells bouquets and roses

peddling dreams

自転車でブーケに薔薇売り夢を撒く

9

a load of wood

on her frail back–

autumn evening

薪束や彼女のか細き背に…秋の暮れ

10

hanging

by a spider’s thread–

the wanton leaf

蜘蛛の糸みだらな木の葉つるしをり

11

going drowsily

milk can in hand–

morning walk

ねぶたげにミルク缶持ち朝散歩

12

walking over

a carpet of dried leaves

footsteps crunch

ざくざくと一面の枯葉を歩む

POEMS

Poems

 

1
ROOTLESS
Hidden from the eyes of others
I was made in secret
but I can’t remember my birth
from foetus in the womb
to severing of the cord
erased the memory
now rootless in the valley
fading sensations of years
pierce the darkling wings of
world wide web that blob my being
twisted and tangled, brushed
away like a fly hate mongers
hashtag my creation
pirouetting platitudes

 

2
DESIGNS
Variously hued
neo-knights knock voters’ doors
search the holy grail
howling, trolling, abusing
baying for blood, lynching, rape
exposing designs
for new history, geography
and deity in mosques
set right blunders they didn’t write
reclaim rights they always had

 

3
NEW DAWN
I love the night with you
when sleepless we yield
to passions of the body
tugging the nagging divine
in the mind ageing fear melt
and dry between the sheets
for a new dawn to set in

 

–Ram Krishna Singh
