MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 228: PARTNERS IN PLANETS

 

 

small designer store

spend timeless hours to explore

minutes to see all

 

landed on Venus

differences in sexes

million copies sold

 

more titles to read

hard to observe anymore

time, strange bedfellow

 

Note:

While my lady was on her shopping round, my mind was buzzing around. In the end she bought nothing, but I had my run of haiku/senryu.

POEM TRANSLATION TANKA ECHOES 47

POEM TRANSLATION TANKA ECHOES 47

 

AHA GAY MOMENTS

啊哈同性戀時刻

 

 

glimpse the gay moment

瞥見同性戀

beauty and beast video

麗人與野獸視频

censors’ eyes sparkle

檢查眼睛閃

venus garments on martians

金星服裝火星人

heads daze, role and soul mates same

頭昏、角與靈同伴

 

Note:

The censorship was removed after some protests by public. This could only happen in a country where rapists fare better than gays. Perhaps the censors read far beyond John Gray’s book, “Beyond Mars and Venus”. Biology is not always clear cut; boundary of gender roles even harder to define; soul mates are in outer spaces. Earthlings are saddened with relate problems: unsatisfied needs, passion and complaints about hormones and boredom. So where to find insight? I find mine sitting on toilet bowls!
