Previous senryu

  1. 言い負けてよかった妻の上機嫌
    I’m glad I lost the argument / my wife’s in a good mood!


  • I hope everyone was able to do something nice for mom yesterday!
  • No winner yesterday. I’m sticking with the most straightforward translation.

Current senryu challenge

Volume: Corona

  1. 下書きの 送信キーを 猫が押し


  • I think this is another easy one with only a single obvious interpretation — prove me wrong! :slight_smile:
  • I’ll refrain from posting my translation today (at least until others have had a chance)
  • I think there may be opportunity for another English 5-7-5 for those so inclined.
  • Please vote (with a like) for your favorite.

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.
