A blog devoted mainly to haiku and senryu and to thoughts about, and inspired by, haiku and senryu.

winter gray
a jet engine whines across
my nerves

grisaille invernale
le couinement d'un moteur
me tape sur les nerfs

I posted my haiku as a comment at Daniele's blog, and she responded with this elegant translation.
