POEM TRANSLATION ECHOES 473 & HAIKU 479

POEM TRANSLATION ECHOES 473 & HAIKU 479

This haiku is my response to salute the inspiration from Frank Prem’s poetry, “A kiss (for the worthy)” published on 26th July 2019. He quoted a line from Walt Whitman’s poem, Leaves of Grass, to compose his poem.

 KISS(拂吻)

sentimental stir

傷感的激動

kiss blown by whispering breeze

微风私语吹飛吻

procreative tune

創造性曲調

Note:

I wrote this run of haiku in response to the lost art of listening:

HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 479: VIRGIN EARS

credulous culture

virgin ears, not listening

to whistle from wind

no love to be heard

eyes glued to faceless smart phone

connectivity

revered rare relic

gathering for good gossips

soup and broth for souls
