MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 438: UNANSWERABLE ANSWERS

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 438: UNANSWERABLE ANSWERS

 

human vanity

unanswerable answers

churn out more questions

 

the quest is joyful

paradoxically sound

end is new begin

 

the game to know all

omnipotence, not my dream

let robots ponder

 

no stress or burn-out

uncertain becomes certain

accept the verdict

 

Note:

This haiku/senryu is in response to V.J. Knutson‘s weekly challenge#39, with theme title of UNANSWERABLE, in her blog, ONE WOMA’S QUEST II, posted on 13th March, 2019.The cartoon is from Helene Vaiilant. Thanks to both poets.

random brain record

随電脑記錄

hidden and haunt the circuit

隐藏困擾的電路

till creatures creep out

至生物爬出

to comfort or to upset

安慰感覺或打亂

unguarded gates in and out

無防護門的進出
