ATLAS POETICA - WORLD TANKA JOURNAL No 30

Lavana Kray:

1
My friends
who used to come by daily
have suddenly left me . . .
I'm scribbling one more thought
on my foot’s plaster cast
x
Prietenii
care veneau de obicei
m-au părăsit subit –
mai scriu o cugetare
pe gheata mea de ghips
2
Roses
and vinyl records  . . .
from the snowy soul
a snake of smoke rises
to heavens
x
Trandafiri
și discuri de vinil –
din sufletul nins
se ridică la cer
un șarpe de fum
3
Black clouds
took everything away — 
the sap of flowers
left in a book is a sign
that you’ve been here
x
Norii hrăpăreți
au luat totul cu ei –
seva florilor
presate într-o carte,
semn că ai fost aici
4
Finally,
something is going on
in the desert . . .
the prints of your steps
filled with tadpoles
x
În sfârșit,
se întâmplă ceva
în deșert –
urmele pașilor tăi
pline cu mormoloci
5
I tied
my dreams in trees,
forgot about the hunters  . . .
the light inside my birds
drenched all away
x
Am urcat
visurile în copac,
uitând de vânători –
s-a scurs toată lumina
din păsările mele

Mainichi, haiku in English


even the autumn leaves

ASAHI HAIKUIST NETWORK/ David McMurray

http://www.asahi.com/ajw/articles/AJ201711030003.html

Ana Drobot may be walking home on a damp, foggy night in Bucharest, Romania. Formed during calm cold nights, fog is common in the late fall. Such dismal climates can evoke a feeling of loneliness and fear.

Mixing up
memories of fog
red turns pink

Lavana Kray:

 1
Illustration de ce poème:

dans le pré en automne
sur chaque brin d'herbe
la rosée qui s'est déposée
sont-ce les larmes des insectes
qui toute la nuit ont crié ?


 2
Qu'évoque pour vous le mot "vague" ?

le temps de quitter...
les vagues de poupe concotent
un cocktail de souvenirs

Lavana Kray ne trimite

Selected and commented by Ban'ya Natsuishi

1
high snow -
I draw a skylark
on blank music sheet

2
bombinating light 
in the schoolyard -
our white hair

3
post-war bulldozing -
a baby stands on tiptoe
to catch dandelions

Comment:
"Your sorrow well mixed with the natural scene".
