Previous senryu

  1. 待合室グリーン券を上に持つ
    まちあいしつ・グリーンけんを・うえにもつ
    In the waiting room / I hold my / first-class ticket aloft

Notes:

  • I’m sticking with my translation, but :confetti_ball: goes to @Gorbit99
  • As discussed, a グリーン車 ticket is a first class ticket on JR trains

Current senryu challenge

Volume: School

  1. 目の前に違う教師がいる目覚め

No hints today, either. Unlike yesterday, I don’t think one is needed today.

Remember to please use a spoiler tag with your translation attempts! Also, please include the reading in kana with your submission.


Everyone is encouraged to participate, no matter your level!

Online tools like dictionaries, sentence databases, and even AI translation engines are fair game and can be extremely helpful. Yomichan is particularly handy if you use the Chrome or Firefox browser.

Here’s the link to the spreadsheet with all the upcoming senryu as well as the translations to date.
