I am an artist. I love languages. These two truths often combine to give birth to new things:
Most of these, though, take the form of visual art. Literary pieces, however, tend to be limited to English (not even Patwa! gasp!). And that is something I strive for: to be so good in a language that I can create something beautiful in that language. I have written two or three haiku, though; and those can be hard.
uku ni yoru | michi no ara kara | inu nomitsu
On a night during the rainy season, a dog drinks from a pothole
Less than glamourous, I know… 🙂
Today, I happened upon some ASL poetry that I like.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3bsJi9_kAI]
I have to go, so no translation for now. But I love the simplicity of it. One day, I’ll be making JSL, Hebrew, Japanese poetry! It’s a promise to myself.
