Haiga & Haiku Poems by Christina Chin



sunning and singing 

tiny feet dangle 

from the swing



Five Haiku with translations by 中野千秋


goslings clear the choked waterways

invasive water hyacinth


雛鳥の水路にホテイアオイかな  千秋


roast chestnut in shitake mushrooms

laid on the table


椎茸の中に焼栗卓上に  千秋


marine park teeming with fish

coral snakes in the reefs


海洋公園海蛇のゐる珊瑚礁  千秋


primrose in November

confuses the season


季節間違え霜月の桜草  千秋


south island December

under the bright blue sky warm breeze


空青し南の島の十二月  千秋
