POEM TRANSLATION TANKA ECHOES 76 & 77

POEM TRANSLATION TANKA ECHOES 76 & 77

 

CANINE CONDUCT

(犬的品行)

lick, sniff and taste waste

掠過嗅髒味

dogs’ unquestioned loyalty

效忠的犬無置疑

smell dirt to track trail

嗅到髒痕迹

comical canine conduct

滑稽似犬的行為

four footed due to weak spine

四足由于脊柱弱

 

Kan responded to haiku 226 with a haiku thus:

 

Fork road to the right

三叉路傾右

Pave with peace, joy and friendship

和平与友善鋪路

Climbing Everest

攀登珠山峰

This is my response in a tanka:

 

DESPERATE DEMAGOGUE

(绝望的煽動)

 

 

trekking Everest

徒步游珠峰

fatal neuroeconomics

毁灭神经经济学

gamblers quirk of fate

赌徒命急转

high stake for senseless rewards

高险奖励無意義

doomed desperate demagogue

煽動者注定绝望
