Ein Haiku

So February so happens to National Haiku Month, or so I’ve been gathering on Twitter. Seriously, check out the hashtag #NaHaiWriMo; you will not be disappointed! There are tons of talented poets who are sharing their daily Haikus using that tag, and I’ve been enjoying every single one that I’ve come across. In that spirit, I decided to give it a shot after not having wrote a Haiku in Lord knows how many years. To further put a wrench into the works, I wrote it in German, a language that I minored in at Purdue but have let become rusty. I’ve been brushing up on it and used the haiku for further practice — so this short diddy might be laden with errors.

Zeit vergeht langsam (Time passes slowly)

Gemainsamkeit verschwindet (Commonality disappears)

Freunde zerlegen (Friends part)
