Butterflies

 

vreva leptira
iza fijuka kose
preraste u muk

a whiz of the scythe -
a throng of butterflies
was turned into hush

 

trka leptira
jedan sleŠe - poslu╣na
senka kraj njega

group of butterflies
only one is landing -
next to its shadow

course de papillons
un s'est posÚ -
ombre a c˘tÚ de lui
(Serge Tome)

mure cho no hitostu chi ni ori kage wo hiku
(Masako Takahashi)

 

leptir i senka
sunce, kamen i potok
dodiruju se

butterfly, shadow,
sun, rock and brook - all of them
touching each other

 

u bari nebo
blistavo se smeje
sunce kroz oblak

in a pond the sky
is laughing luminously
the Sun through a cloud

 

trepere ╣are
na leptirovom krilu
va╣ar lepote

colorful patterns
on the butterflies' wings -
a vanity fair
