Translations from Bengali, haiku in English with Japanese translations

Coffee — A Haiku


untasted coffee 
in a deserted cafe -- 
crowds of memories ... 

 
 
 
 
 

Newborn Year — A Haiku

smiling newborn year -- a moment younger at most, than eternity ---

 

 

 

 

Umbrella 3 — A Haiku

umbrella

Its shelter offered -- Hoping for rain's arrival Lonely umbrella

 
 
 
 
 

Lonely — A Haiku

2Elderly_Woman-239x300


Local trains delayed -- Maids' cacophony missing This lonely old age ...

 
 
 
 
 

Rain — A Haiku

A sky filled with rain, —

Leapt and swept before it left —

No sky filled with rain …

 

 

 

 

Comfort – A Haiku

Comfort

Sitting in comfort
A baby fungus enjoys
Music of the stream —

 

Crickets – A Haiku

Crickets

A desolate street —
Thronging the chirping crickets
In shower washed trees

Walking — A Haiku

Walking

Did they leave too soon,
Or, are they yet to arrive?
Pondered I, walking —

 

 

With You — A Haiku

Image

Grueling summer

The coolness of village pond

In the shade with you

 

 

 

Eyes — A Haiku

Lingering winter
Bare trees shivering in cold —
Ah! Your warm, brown eyes
