One Man’s Maple Moon: Shimmer Tanka

#Haiku Happenings #6: Martha Magenta’s latest #tanka appears in the Bamboo Hut and in Chinese translations in the Neverending Story!

Martha Magenta

English Original


sometimes
a shimmer on the stair
a trace of your scent
lingers in my memory
and fills the air I breathe

First published: The Bamboo Hut, Autumn 2016


Chinese Translation (Traditional)


有時候
樓梯上的微光
一絲你的氣味
不僅縈繞在我的記憶中
而且充滿在我呼吸的空氣中

Chinese Translation (Simplified)


有时候
楼梯上的微光
一丝你的气味
不仅萦绕在我的记忆中
而且充满在我呼吸的空气中
