MALAYSIAN TANKA ECHOES 25: SPRING CLEANING(春天大掃除)

 

This tanka is inspired by reading The Viking Maiden’s blog. I tender

my appreciation to her.

 

 

spring cleaning for home

為家春天潔

declutter dead wood for space

為空間掃除废物

lazy in lost world

懒惰失世界

boxes of old toys untouched

盒子舊物不变動

afresh with more space and time

更新多空間、時間

 

HAIKU TO HAIKU: ECHOES 172 TREASURE HUNT(尋寶)

Claudia McGill commented on Tanka 24 thus:

 

The buried treasure

埋藏的寶物

uncovered by the searchings

經由研究的搜索

of the inner eye

属于心眼内

 

This is my respond: (TREASURE HUNT)

 

pains to pursue search

辛苦追搜索

the miracle is within

奇迹在内心里面;

knock at every door

敲在每扇門
