Thank you Galina. Very Happy

Yours must be very attractive, I am sure.

I tried two translations, Russian in French and Russian in English, but the result is not very understandable, in anycase for me.

Ouukay. Here is translation, keeping no meter.

The day is over.
I puff away foam of clouds
with my flute from the Moon.


Keeping my back straight.
Clinging to life with my flute,
and… Tsu-Re-Chi-Ri!


While I sorted out the notes
field-lark whistled out
all my songs.


No sword but the flute,
that is what I took from the Master.
Now learning how to breathe.

Sorry for my poor haiku-English ))

Who's oatmeal softened belly
Who blows and billows
Only a shakuhachi

Since the forum has gone quiet I thought I'd nip in and share something!
OK no purists please…I know these are only haiku in the sense that they contain 17 syllables.
Earlier in the summer I tried to write down how I felt as I practiced at the bottom of my garden, where I am lucky enough to have a wildlife pond.

A near perfect note
By a wild pond
Will still the turmoil of my mind.

As the warbler sings and
The damselfly lays her eggs
I breathe out Ro.


Great also Felix Okay

Near sea or mountains
Shakuhachi breathes calmly
With sunshine or snow

Wind !
My Shakuhachi go to the wild.

Wind !
Say him I love him.

I'll go to the wild
to join him in the wind.


In french :

Vent !
Mon Shakuhachi est parti vers le Sauvage.

Tempête !
Dis-lui que je l'aime.

Je vais aller vers le Sauvage,
pour que nous nous retrouvions sous le Vent.

Another :

Shakuhachi,
Let me tame you slowly,
Let me murmur you the song of the Wind.
Let me shout the Savage inside of you.
Tame me slowly,
Murmur me the song of the wind.
