GREECE TOUR ECHOES 246: SUNSET FOR SALES

GREECE TOUR ECHOES 246: SUNSET FOR SALES

 

idyllic ripple

charred terraced volcanic cliff

crescent hugs crater

 

whining winding road

breathtaking beauty top down

rugged majesty

 

crimsoned horizon

rest at romantic resort

cold pool not cozy

 

rebirth with new dawn

spend sweet memory moments

revitalizes

 

classical mansions

foggy peak to sandy beach

lobsters with raw beer

 

cobbled-stone shop lanes

blue shutters with white low roofs

drunken donkey rides

 

sunset views for sale

grand poise for honeymooners

memories to hang

perched on edge of rock

monasteries hang in air

ideal refuge

 

between earth and sky

nest on pillars and boulders

living tectonic

 

fury of fervor

single minded construction

blossom of deep faith

 

mind find unity

aura spread beyond valleys

oneness with nature

GROUP HAIKU ECHOES 242: CEREBRATING ON CO-CELEBRATION

 

 

 

 

hundred and two years

celebrate and cerebrate

fair add and subtract

 

one cake and candle

rebirthing the lights and flame

young has larger slice

 

the song recycle

wishes and the ritual

dreams in dreamy world

 

share what is common

world is yours as well as mine

no exclusive right

 

 

 

P.S Apology, the pictures come from android to e mails., appears disorderly.

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 221: MEALS WITHOUT MYTH

 

food, fuel and fun

turn the table, joy is ploy

whine and wine unmatched

 

best cuisine culture

balance, not binary meal

delectable choice

 

menu minus myth

focus on health or hazards

toxic excesses

   

 

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU 220: OBDURATE OMNIVORE

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU 220: OBDURATE OMNIVORE

 

 

not give in but shift

self-righteousness bore silly

lifestyle survival

 

food chain and meatscape

uncertain on sentience

hook to taste habits

 

crave for carcasses

animal lives and short span

fat, salt and spices

 

awful appetite

hunger and humanity

direct diet niche

POEM TRANSLATION: TANKA 65 & 66

POEM TRANSLATION: TANKA 65 & 66

 

PARABLE

(寓言)

 

siblings stab on will

弟妹戳遗嘱

unkindest cut send shivers

无義切伤手足凉

beyond dynasty

超越朝边界

causal implosion comic

因果内爆耍無稽

parable for parenting

人成之比喻

 

MALAYSIAN HAIKU AND TANKA ECHOES 66:

Kan responded to Tanka 65 in a haiku, thus:

 

Real or comic grief

真或悲哀思

House shuttered down for business

府议开闭為业务

Reopens the grave.

坟墓重公開。

This is my response in tanka:

 

GRIEVING

   哀思

 

new haunts for old house

老房作新巢

ghostly memories linger

徘徊幽靈般回憶

feud as showpieces

争吵如展品

anger shuts door of grieving

愤怒悲傷門關閉

reopens when love is found

重開待得愛來時
