Haiku #4

Haiku 4, EN

I really enjoy writing metahaiku, meaning haiku that talk about themselves. What I enjoy even more is avidly searching the best way to translate them since, quite often, I prefer writing the original in English and then returning to my mother tongue, Greek. Once again I attempted a French translation, just to keep my mind busy.

A short form of Japanese poetry, haiku traditionally consist of 17 syllables, divided into three phrases (5-7-5). Whilst they used to take nature as their subject, this has changed over time.
