Previous senryu

  1. 棒グラフ伸ばしてくれた子の寝顔
    ぼうグラフ・のばしてくれた・このねがお
    The sleeping face of my child / boosted my sales (performance graph)

Notes:

  • :confetti_ball: :confetti_ball: double congrats to @Arzar33 (first post a winner!)
  • This one was really like a puzzle
  • I added the words “performance chart” in parentheses because they aren’t in the original, nor in @Arzar33’s translation, but they help to explain the meaning

Current senryu challenge

Volume: whatever

9.終電車どうして俺だけしらふなの

Hints:

  • I had to look up the word しらふ
  • It’s not the one that means “white spot” :grin:

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.
