lnhammer: two saguaro cacti in a desert thornscrub landscape, with canyon walls behind (desert)
[personal profile] lnhammer
Today I heard the first cicada of the season -- almost exactly on time:


    In a green-room tree,
a solo cicada coughs,
    then starts warming up
on scales of a single note --
summer concerts will soon start.

Warning: contents contain line-breaks.

As language practice, I was translating classical Japanese poetry -- most recently, book 11 (love part 1) of the Kokinshu anthology. This project is, however, on hiatus. Past translations are archived here. Suggestions, corrections, and questions always welcome.

There's also original pomes in the journal archives.
