preblizu suncu
ona kapljica znoja
niz njeno bedro


too close to the sun
that drop of sweat
down her thigh

prvi poljubac
rumenilo obraza i latica
u isto vrijeme


first kiss
the blushing of cheeks and petals
at the same time

Upravo je iz tiska izašla moja treća (druga samostalna) zbirka haiku pjesama LINIJE ŽIVOTA / LIFE LINES / 生命線 u izdanju TONDAK-a. Knjiga je trojezična (hrvatski, engleski, japanski), predgovor je napisala vrsna hrvatska haiku pjesnikinja Nina Kovačić, dok su svojim kratkim osvrtima doprinijeli ugledni kanadski pjesnik Michael Dudley te prevoditeljica i pjesnikinja Ikuyo Yoshimura.

My third (second solo) book of haiku poetry LIFE LINES published by TONDAK has just come out of print. The collection is trilingual (Croatian, English, and Japanese), with contributions from Ikuyo Yoshimura (Japanese translations + blurb), Nina Kovačić (foreword) and Michael Dudley (blurb).

bonaca
vučem prve poteze kista
jutarnjim plivanjem


dead calm
making my first brushstrokes
with a morning swim


死んだような静けさ
朝の水泳をしながら
初めてのブラシ泳法

povratak
konfiguracija zvijezda
na svom mjestu


coming home
the configuration of stars
in place

krči svoj put
kroz urbanu džunglu
rijeka Saigon


worming its way
through urban jungle
Saigon river

suživot . . .
nevoljko udišem zrak
osobe do mene


coexistence . . .
I reluctantly breathe in the air
of the person next to me

promjena vjetra
u isto vrijeme kad i jučer
ples borova


shift in wind
same time as yesterday
the dance of pines

korak po korak
blatnjavim čizmama
premještam brdo


step by step
I move the mountain
with my muddy boots

grmljavina
pulsiranje zemlje

the pulse of the earth

godišnjica smrti
u ladicama i ormarima
tražim odgovore


death anniversary
searching for answers
in drawers and cupboards

zavojiti put
pomisao na što je iza
gura me naprijed


winding road
the thought of what's behind
keeps me going

težina rata
savjest pognula glavu
bliže tlu


weight of war
conscience bows the head
closer to the ground

istrošeni križ
ponovo slovkam
očevo ime


worn out cross
I spell my father's name
once more
