Traipsing though the hall one day in the merry merry month of....July?
Wait, that can't be right, can it?
Maybe not, but this interview was certainly the right place to stop.
Now I know, if I want to hone my haiku skills;
I know just who to come to.
(ending a sentence on a preposition...is that proper English? Perhaps I should ask Witt.)
Oh, and about that beer...'peeks at his number of postings and rushes to wait anxiously by the mailbox'

I'm sorry I found your free beer--and had to drink it before it got warm.
Thans for reading :tongue

HiYa Russ,
Enjoyed learning a little about you. Writing haiku is easy; writing graceful haiku is such a difficult thing to do. I'll have to track your words more closely. I do have a question for you, and here it is:

Do you think haiku in any other language can approximate the delicacy of that written in Japanese?

Thank you for the mention and softwords, my pretty, thank you for this accomplished interview.

I will start by saying translations of any kind/or language is a most difficult task.
To try and imagine the original authors intentions--and capture that feel--
no easy task.

But it is possible--Japanese with its very elaborate punctuation is hard to duplicate in any langauge
As close as we can get- is good enough for the girls we go with--as the saying goes.

If the poetry of Paul Celan can be translated--anything can
its when we "Americanize" things by making up rules
like 5 -7 -5 that we go astray.

Makes one wonder about the translations of books like the Bible and Koran?
How much was influenced by the political environment of the time they were being translated?
