Best Poem of John Knight

1118 Spanish Haikus

Spanish is very similar to Latin (from which it is derived) and Italian consequently Spanish Haikus also have an excellent 'voice' due to the vowel endings. Again I included some literal translations into English.

SOLO Y CANSADO
PERO TRAS LA VENTANA
BRILLA LA NIEVE

Alone and tired
But behind the window
The snow sparkles

DOCENAS DE PALOMAS
ALDREDOR DE UN MENDIGO
Y UN TROZO DE PAN

Dozens of pigeons
Around a beggar

What Is Man?

It is a fact of Science that in terms of size,
The median between the vastness of the universe
And the minuteness of an electron is - MAN!
This makes the term 'Middleman' much more significant.

Modern technology has unwittingly placed Man at the centre,
The centre of Global Development and Global Destruction.
The centre of praise - for his discoveries and conquest of space
The centre of blame - for pollution and global warming.
