Five Free-form Haiku by 船木月々紅 (Funaki Tsukizukibeni)

神は冬をつくりたもう一本の枯葦

God made the winter
One more withered reed

月が静かにさしよればフラスコにある球面

When the moon silently approaches
a fresco on a spherical surface

ハーモニカの音階細長い光を蛍がひく

A firefly plays
scales of long, narrow light
on the harmonica

四ツの方向から四人が昇って来て絶頂に金色の十字架をたてる

From four directions
four people climb to the summit
where stands a golden cross

水の上に浮いて夏の月がやがて水底に沈んでゆくようす

Floating on the water
the summer moon
soon sinks to the bottom
