Gracias por visitando ~ comments welcome ~ Amor XOX

 

LUNES (It means Monday but LUNAS is more romantic !)  

are "Free Spirit"  5 3 5 poems in English ! It translates to

LUNAS (MOON) in Spanish hence the enigmatic title !

I like to translate LUNES and HAIKU etc to and from other

Languages ! It is virtually impossible to maintain the

5 3 5 & 5 7 5 syllabic pattern in translation !

 

I will be in GERMANY ~ With the College visiting the

German Markets until Wednesday ~ so I will post some

GERMAN HAIKU next week ~ Love BRIAN XOXOX

      Great work and do enjoy Germany - I love the continental markets so am quite jealous. look forward to the German writes.

      • BRIAN & ANGELA

        Thanks Micheal ~ the German Markets are the best every day is Christmas Day ! The ~Business Studies ~ Languages ~ Catering etc are 17 ~ 25 so I am going as a Chaperone & Translator (should one be needed ~ you know what Teens are like !) but I will have chance to evaluate the BRATWURST UND GLUWEIN ! I will post some German HAIKU ~ with translation next Thursday ~ I will miss MPS ! Yours BRIAN

YES I will have fun in Germany at Christmas ! Seasonal Hugs ~ BRIAN @@@@@@@

          That is nice how you mixed the two languages together. Maybe it because I am from Miami, but Spanish always sounds good with english. Still, for honest feedback, respectfully, I personally do not think that is your style of writing, but if it makes you feel good, and everyone else likes it, than go for it.

            GRACIAS AMIGO ~ Spanish is my second language and I love to visit Florida because one meets a lot of Hispanics and I can attend Spanish Language services in Churches and buy Spanish language Newspapers ! I accept your comment and I could have just posted the LUNES (3 line poems) in Spanish with no translation (but not everyone can read Spanish) or just in English which would have defeated the object and the title ! Your BRIAN

            • ForeverJesus6

              Alright, I was just saying my opinion. As I said, 'it was a good piece. I'm glad you visit Florida.

                GRACIAS CHRISTINA ~ Pleased you liked it ~ If i post a Poem in a language other than English ~ I always add a translation ~ OK Tu y Santita sono las dos Senoritas ~ I hone my Spanish on ~ hence the joint dedication ! I hope it's not too cold in Germany ~ there is more SNOW than you know where ! I will post some German Haiku with translations on Thursday ~ I will miss MPS and you while I am in DEUTSCHLAND !

                    • myself and me

                      Love this double language poem.
                      This is the season for gluehwine, warm with fruit smell. Have a wonderful trip there.

                      Mio Caro Amico BRIAN...
                      As I’m reading your poem and read the words SPANISH EYES, it immediately reminded me of AL MARTINO’s song. It’s an oldie. Love that song and your great poem! Wonderful idea to combine the two languages to write your great poem!

                      Baci e forti abbracci...
                      ~Laura~
