Would anyone be willing to share poetry they have written?

It would be great to see some poems by non-native English speakers in their native languages with an English translation. Here are a couple of haiku I wrote:


Sky high eagle eyes

What do you see<o:p></o:p>

Searching the canyons of my heart<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Praying mantis green<o:p></o:p>

Not in vain a wint'ry death<o:p></o:p>

Babies in the spring<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Haiku is short, but I always have a feeling it's not easy to write! Good job, Stan :)

I also loved Allie's poem! I'm puzzled on why she thinks her level in English is A1.

She's obviously advanced. Thank you both for sharing your poems.



Well, I'm not even sure if this is poetry, but I wrote this back in Aug.2016 when italki

launched their new website :D



My sweet pinkish italki where have you gone?

Have you really vanished and left us alone?

You were definitely my favorite place all along

Now I wait for your pages to load from night until dawn

I have to count for 10 before browsing you on my phone

Please come back to us as soon as possible or I'll yell and moan

Allow me to glimpse you again and I promise I'll use a happier tone

You are the one and I don't think I'll ever enjoy using your clone!

Excellent topic, Stan!

Here my humble contribution

"Companion"

You may have your own love,
But I surely have mine.
Whether yours is a he or a she,
Mine is certainly wine.

The best among the best,
The bliss among the blisses.
Why would I want love?
If wine is better than kisses?

Why would I ponder or wonder
If I can declare without further ado?
What if it can’t ever lover me?
I can love it and I do!

In gladness, a merry companion,
Involving my heart with cheer;
In melancholy, no better relief
Than a glass of wine and bitter tears.

Thanks for the kind words, Mumtaz!

I like your poem very much! It's funny and it remined me that iTalki used to be pink! I had totally forgotten about it!
