I do love waking!

And I do like sleeping but

Not going to sleep

The art telephone

A curious game indeed

And sometimes bizarre

Insomnia is

The quickest cure for a good

Night's sleep. True story.

Just a small drawing

Nothing to stress myself with

The stress comes later

Summer is the shade

Winter is the sunlight, rays

We appreciate

Archaic diction

Abstruse yet so beguiling

For one like myself

Ancient rust peels off

Leaves me with a dusty cough

Here we go again

The benevolent light enters hence

I quiver at the sight of it

I'm reluctant to accept it

I may be late but

Now going like I make stuff

Twentyfour seven

I peek to wonder

how years affect our shared voice.

Glad you are alive


it's been a while, thread

Response to A Haiku a Day 2021-01-30 05:00:57


Forgotten hobbies

I suppose that's what happens

With enough of them


A nice setting

A casual colloquy

An ideal evening

Response to A Haiku a Day 2021-01-30 05:53:14


Look at the palm trees

Is this paradise? Am I?

Look at the calm beach


Look at the concrete

Am I in a dream? Am I?

Look at the parking


Look at the parks in

The city! Aren't they pretty?

Must be going mad


I must be going

Because new winds are blowing

Hope they take me back

Just twenty minutes?

Lucky! I've waited an hour

To get hung up on.

Där inget rim är mindre

Vi seglar in den


Far ut över vid

Den stora vidden i mitt

Liv där ingen trivs

If we just listen,

Or look, or read, or sometimes...

Use Google Translate

Ooh, wasn't observative enough, second line ended on the same symbol too but that can't have been all I was comparing can it...


Seems differences don't seem all as different when you don't innately read the language.


Good to know. Google maybe not so bad after all then here either.

Curious how you'd translate the literal meaning yourself? Google gives...


Life is immoral

Heroes can't give back

Kill kill kill kill kill

Life is immoral
Heroes can't give back
Kill kill kill kill kill


kept trying out different english words or phrases until stupid google gives me the characters i want. would have been much easier with Swiftkey on my phone but I hate accessing websites that are mostly made for desktop, on my phone.


As for the "literal" translation:

Life no/empty moral.

Hero cannot pay back sky/heaven.

Kill kill kill kill kill.


Paraphrased:

Life has no morals.

Heroes can never repay heaven.

Kill Kill Kill Kill Kill.

Ah that's how you did it. More elaborate process behind that haiku than you'd expect.

Kill kill kill kill kill.

Paraphrased:

Interesting. Seems Google missed the 'heaven' bit entirely, though otherwise not all bad after all...


Paraphrased version almost in authentic haiku form like this too.
