Photo Haiku

where is Troy
where is Tara
only the sun remains
cá bhfuil an Traí
cá bhfuil an Teamhair
níl fágtha ach an ghrian

léargas dubh

trí shealán
past lives
darkly glimpsed . . .

kontakuto renzu

faoi mar theastaigh uaim
an salachar go léir léir
atá feicthe agam
a ghlanadh: leanaim orm
ag cuimilt mo lionsaí tadhaill

van Gogh

ag spraoi le portán
dála Takuboku-san
chun cian a mhaolú
        glaoimse air as d'ainmse
        a shearc - fairsinge an aigéin
like Takuboku*
i am playing with a crab
to lift loneliness
        i call the crab by Your name
        Beloved - the wide ocean!

*Ishikawa Takuboku (1886 -1912)
