Of Thoughts and Swords

A blog about Science, Philosophy, Wargaming, Literature and other things, in three or more languages.

Haiku 25.04.2015

Has been a while since I posted one, Inspiration has run low lately, but the thoughts of meeting a specific person that day helped. This one has undergone some changes along the way. The first Japanese version, is the one I like best, while the renderings in the other languages wouldn´t come easily with this one:

雨見らん (あめみらん)

烏枝上  (からすえだうえ)

薄明に  (はくめいに)










Does it rain?

The raven might spy upon the branch

within the twilight


regnet es und

schauet der Rabe auf dem Ast

ins Zwielicht?
