NeverEnding Story - One Man's Maple Moon: Loneliness Tanka

English Original
loneliness
staring at me ...
your letter
already one year old
still unopened


Chinese Translation (Traditional)
孤單
瞪著我 ...
已經一年了
你的信
仍然還沒打開來看

Chinese Translation (Simplified)
孤单
瞪着我...
已经一年了
你的信
仍然还没打开来看

" The juxtaposition of the personified loneliness and a one-year-old unopened letter is emotionally effective and the use of "staring" adds psychological depth to this "middle-of-the-story" tanka."

ATLAS POETICA - WORLD TANKA JOURNAL No 30

1
My friends
who used to come by daily
have suddenly left me . . .
I'm scribbling one more thought
on my foot’s plaster cast
x
Prietenii
care veneau de obicei
m-au părăsit subit –
mai scriu o cugetare
pe gheata mea de ghips

2
Roses
and vinyl records  . . .
from the snowy soul
a snake of smoke rises
to heavens
x
Trandafiri
și discuri de vinil –
din sufletul nins
se ridică la cer
un șarpe de fum

3
Black clouds
took everything away — 
the sap of flowers
left in a book is a sign
that you’ve been here
x
Norii hrăpăreți
au luat totul cu ei –
seva florilor
presate într-o carte,
semn că ai fost aici

4
Finally,
something is going on
in the desert . . .
the prints of your steps
filled with tadpoles
x
În sfârșit,
se întâmplă ceva
în deșert –
urmele pașilor tăi
pline cu mormoloci

5
I tied
my dreams in trees,
forgot about the hunters  . . .
the light inside my birds
drenched all away
x
Am urcat
visurile în copac,
uitând de vânători –
s-a scurs toată lumina
din păsările mele
