Die roten und blauen Wolken des Morgens

Spiegeln sich

In den Fenstern gegenüber

The morning clouds of red and blue


Within the windows

    Beautiful. Thank you for the English. It’s interesting to see how google translates the Japanese and the German as compared to your wonderfully rendered English version.

      Thank you for the comment. I render the English and German version differently from the original, as I try to focus on the feeling and not let myself be restrained by the sylllabels in these two languages.

        Such a talent you have. I’ve been around Japan all my adult life and I can barely stumble through some of the basics. Not to mention your other languages…Awesome.

        Thank you very much for the laurels, yet I have to decline the praise. I have no talent at all for languages.I had to struggle very hard to achieve a decent level of Japanese. One of the best things about Japanese poetry is that is has more to do with learning and knowing than talent. So don´t give up.
