This is the haiku thread, which will remain open for submissions until September 4 (perhaps the Labour Day Weekend will provide inspiration for some);-).
After this time, the judges will announce the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. The prize is accomplishment, a glowing happiness and the admiration of your peersicon_smile.gif.
Have fun!
Nancy

How about a KudoZ theme? Aug 14, 2003

On the occasion of the 500,000th KudoZ question being asked, I suggest those without a theme consider KudoZ as a topic. KudoZku.

A flicker of fingers,
a flurry of clicks...
Enlightenment comes in a word.

KudoZkuZ - *Not for contest but for the sake of participating only* Aug 14, 2003

Sky is the limit
When asking KudoZ questions.
Don't be shy, just ASK.

Context is crucial.
Don't forget to add details.
We'll help you better.

The best thing of it
is to receive instant clues,
and tip you the wink.

The worst thing of it,
Is having to choose the best
Answer and grade it.

I dare you to try
Any language, any theme;
For you'll have answers.

Oh yep, while we're at it now,
Slang material can
Be treated damn well...icon_wink.gif

Word-blocks from your mind
reconstituted in mine.
Our worlds are bigger.

Heat Aug 16, 2003

Icy hot.
Iron hot.
Hot and sticky and wet and tricky.
But I do not recall the heat.

Silogistic Haiku Aug 16, 2003

If crime does not pay
and translation does not pay,
are we criminals?

Romeo and Juliet Haiku Aug 16, 2003

scent of fresh roses
arrives on the balcony
where you await me

Just adding some romance to ProZ...

So cute... Aug 17, 2003

Old days ,
Just memories
New days to come
Dream and lotteries
How many a midnight
Just wondering
Kudoz


a whole day's technical translation,
now take a breath
oh, raining outside

Translators

We bridge the gorges
that divided humankind
since Babel Tower
