yorukamome [userpic]
el día que...

...this is the second folio - rougher than the previous one,
it seems, but it's some hard to work on a 400 years old vellum...

thanks for coming, diev...and what a nice comment!
"armonia" is the word I'd like to write and paint
every time I sit and touch a pen and a paper sheet...

dear kamome, can you tell me a few words about my first attempt to translate a haiku in Russian into Italian? on the right side there you can read author's long version in English (translated in the order of a word by word), my freelance version "attempts to remeber" in English, and a version in French by apelcinova.
I hope you will understand the common idea of that haiku through those languages.

that haiku is very memorably for me... I don't know exactly why... maybe because its author (Wowwi) writes there about our common friend who is dead now...

thank you in advance
and long live armonia!

ciao, diev...yes, I understand very well the basic idea
and the feeling which permeates the haiku - and I would
never dare to "correct" anything of others' attempts:
so I have just added some of my own to the link above,
and I hope you won't be too upset with me... ;D
