Farrera [9-13] a gunsaku [haiku sequence]

9. somewhere in the fog
the little bell
around the horse's neck


10. the cuckoo -
listen!
is she counting syllables?


11. old man singing in the field
drawing down the sun
all over the valley


12. the patient mule, standing,
what does he think
of the sparrows?


13. feeding time -
the old man
singing to the rabbits

translated from the Irish by Gabriel Rosenstock

MAENAD

In her womb she bears the constant sound of bees
That will be silenced only when a wave
Surges to her waist

She stands in the sea
Something unspeakable
In her almond-shaped eyes

Salt foam soon will sting
