Pháp Hoan |Haiku 51 (17)

Lotus blossomed in the night
caused the old monk’s cravings might
the scent of an old lover

By Pháp Hoan, translation by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

 

Lotus blossomed in the night 

caused the old monk’s cravings might

the scent of an old lover

Sen nở trong đêm

lão sư chợt thèm

mùi hương người tình cũ.
