Previous senryu

  1. 誰かじゃなくて何かに似ている人
    だれかじゃな・くてなにかにに・ているひと
    Dude looks like
    Not someone,
    But some thing

Notes:

  • @JazzFuneral is on a roll :confetti_ball:
  • Nod to my previous coworkers that “you guys” is apparently not gender neutral (maybe I should have used “dudes”)

Current senryu challenge

Volume: Various Settings

  1. 禁煙と見事に書けて一服す

It’s not the words that are hard, but I’m not 100% certain of my own translation. I’ll be interested to see if others’ translations match my own.

Remember to please use the 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.
