1 俳句 (HAIKU

Orhidee-n geam-

din afară doar gerul

răspunde cu flori

Orchids in the window-

from the outside only the frost

respond with flowers

窓際の蘭

外の霜だけが

花に応える

Daniela Varvara

2 俳句 (HAIKU

着膨れて

門番われを

威圧する

In heavy warm clothing

a gatekeeper

intimidates me

(Yusuke Miyake)

3 短歌 (TANKA

Nu unul, ci trei

paznici la castel, deși

regina-i moartă

Oare numai pisica

poate avea nouă vieți?

Not one, but three

guards at the castle though

the queen is dead

Can only the cat

have nine lives?

一匹じゃなく三匹が

死んでしまった女王の

城を守っている

猫だけが九つの命を

持てる?

4 詩 (POEM

実は都会にも獣道はある

私は出勤する時だいたいそこを通ることにしている

その道はだいたい狭い

人間はときとして屈まなければならない

たまに近所の家から突き出た木の枝に頭をぶつけ

目から果物で出来た星を落としたりする

In fact, there are animal routes in the city

I usually go there when I go to work

the road is almost narrow

humans sometimes have to bow down

I occasionally hit my head against a tree branch

protruding from a neighbor’s house

and,I drop stars made of fruits from my eyes

(Y)

5 詩 (POEM

Și totuși alte nebănuite poteci cresc

din sâmburii pașilor noștri grăbiți:

urme de animal hăituit lăsăm

după fiecare trecere,

așa orbi cum suntem după fiecare apus

același pământ ne va-nghiți trupul

dar nu același cer ne va primeni sufletul -

nu acum, nu aici, nu așa.

And yet other unexpected paths are growing

from the seeds of our hasty steps:

we leave traces of hounded animal

after each passage,

as blind as we are after each sunset

the same earth will swallow our body

but not the same heaven will renew our soul –

not now, not here, not so.

私たちの性急なステップの種から

まだ予期しないほかの小道たちが育って行く

私たちは通過するたびに猟犬の痕を残す

まるで日が沈んでしまったら目が見えなくなるように

同じ地球が私たちの体を飲み込む

しかし同じ天国は私たちの魂を更新しない

今でなく、ここでもなく、そのようにでもなく

6 詩 (POEM

日付け変更線を跨いで

反復横跳びをしよう

そうすれば我々は永遠の命が得られる

青い太平洋のうえに

真っ赤なペンキで下手くそに線を引いたのは

誰だ?

Straddling the International Date Line

let’s make a side jump repeatedly

then we will have eternal life

who drew a line with red paint poorly

on the blue Pacific Ocean?

(Y)

7 俳句 (HAIKU

Se intuneca:

linia morții peste

linia vieții

It gets dark:

the line of death across

the line of life.

日が暮れて

死亡線が交差する

生命線と

(D)

8 詩 (POEM

「明日には体重が1kg減るだろう!」

と体重計に乗りながら私はいつも叫ぶ

しかしこの予言はたいてい的中しない

たぶん私には予言者のオーラがないからだ

そこで私は

「予言者のオーラを身に着ける方法」

をインターネットで検索した

すると「毎晩チョコレートを食べる事」と

解答が出てきた

したがって相変わらず私の予言は的中しない

“I will lose 1kg tomorrow!”

I always shout while riding on the weight scale

but this prophecy usually doesn’t come true

maybe because I don’t have a prophet aura

so I searched on the internet for

„How to wear the prophet aura”

then, „Eat chocolate every night”

the answer came out

so my prediction is still not as accurate

(Y)


9 俳句 (HAIKU

Grămadă-n market-

nu-nvățăm lecția nici

pe timp de criză

Crowded in the market-

we don’t learn our lesson either

in times of crisis

市場の混雑

危機の時でも

我らは学ばない

(D)

10 詩 (POEM

座禅を組みながら

瞑想にふけっていると

心臓を中心として空虚が広がり

大きな穴になってしまった

私の肉は円状に穴を薄く縁取るのみ

たまに春の蝶が何も知らずに

その穴を潜り抜け

つかのま白熱化する

While sitting in Zen meditation

the emptiness spreads around my heart

it has become a big hole

my flesh only has a thin circular edge

sometimes the spring buttefly which doesn’t know anything

go through that hole

and it will be incandescent

(Y)

11 短歌 (TANKA

În pandemie

privim lumea de la geam:

egalitate

și lumina și umbra

locuiesc deopotrivă.

In the pandemic

we look at the world from the window:

equality.

and light, and shadow

live at the same time.

パンデミックの中で

私たちは窓から等しく

世界を眺める

光と影は

同時にある

(D)

12 短歌 (TANKA

見る者の

なき桜花

往来の

なき歩道の上

散りゆきにけり

Cherry blossoms

that no one sees

have fallen

on the sidewalk

where no one walks

(Y)
