Argentée, Maine Coon,

Argentée, Maine Coon,

My Maine Coon’s name is Argentée, which means “Silvery” in English. I took this photo in April 2004, when she was just 2 years old.

winter haiku d’hiver – great horned owl = grand duc d'Amérique 

great horned owl
eyes on the snow,
out on a limb *

* pun

great horned owl haiku

grand duc d'Amérique 
scrutant la neige,
royauté d’hiver

The texts of the English and French haikus are entirely different, because it is impossible to render the pun “out on a limb” in French. Les textes des haikus en anglais et en français ne correspondent pas du tout, car il est impossible de traduire l'expression “out on a limb” en français. 


Linear A haiku: a fawn living in the fields

linear a haiku deer in the fields

This haiku is entirely in Mycenaean-derived New Minoan (NM1), except for the word kasaru, which is Old Minoan, and apparently means surviving (drought), at least from context on the tablet on which it appears (Haghia Triada HT 10). I have transcribed it into ancient Greek so that it fits with the rest of the haiku.
