Haiku by Xenia Tran

blossom haze

spring is passing

before our eyes

花のもや

春が過ぎて行く

目の前で

light rain

around the buddha’s feet

a sea of diamonds

小雨

仏の足の周り

ダイヤモンドの海

sea pinks

sunlight draws her colours

around the rocks

海のピンク

日光が色を描く

岩の周りに

these colours

the new and ever never

gifts from the sea

これらの色

新しい、かつてない

海からの贈り物

empty salad bowl

too beautiful to eat

these flowers

– published on Tranature blog

空のサラダボウル

美しすぎて食べられない

これらの花を

stillness of trees

the wind picks up where she left
