POEM TRANSLATION HAIKU ECHOES 276

 

 OPIUM WAR III

(三次鸦片战争)

 

greetings from gunboats

从砲艦祝

more power than fire crackers

更大力量比爆竹

allied reunion

的團聚

 

demonise dragon

妖魔化

grind teeth and biceps to scare

磨齒張爪作恐嚇

out of China seas

露出中國海

 

plough pillars with care

在乎犁支柱

greenback and petrodollars

美鈔和石油美元

science root is strong

科學根生定

POEM TRANSLATION HAIKU 225 ROWDY

 

Mr. Kan responded to Tanka 74 in a haiku:

 

Himalaya tea

喜马拉雅茶

Steeped in ice and snow partake

浸泡冰和雪共享

Froze all chesty moves.

凍結全傲氣

 

This is my response in a haiku:

 

ROWDY

(粗暴)

 

rowdy trespasser

粗暴侵犯者

gatecrashing private party

闖進私人的家園

puffy with bare chest

擴张以暴胸
