あの丘で
紙で作った
飛行機は
桜に落ちた
探している子

Ano oka de
Kami de tsukutta
Hikouki wa
Sakura ni ochita
Sagashiteiru ko

On that hill
A paper-made
Air-plane
Fell in the cherry blossoms
A searching child

Pretty! :) It makes me think of that new Ghibli film coming out. The Wind Rises I believe it's called? Very nice poem!

Isn't this format a predecessor of haiku?

As far as I know, it is older than haiku, but I don't know about the predecessor part :P

This is beautiful; such a sense of adventure and innocence. 

If I may ask, is there a reason for the hyphen in 'air-plane'? I personally don't think the word needs a hyphen (and I also slightly dislike it there, due to the fact that you have the hyphenated 'paper-made' in the previous line). These are just my thoughts though, of course!

Overall, this is a lovely tanka. Congratulations on the DD! :aww:

Actually I wondered about it when I was translating it into English, and it's the same thing as words like "theatre" and "theatre". It's a difference between British English and American English. In British English it's written with a hyphen :) I'm not British or American either way, but I just had to choose one way, right? :D

Thank you :)

Ah, interesting! I personally always say 'aeroplane', but 'air-plane' sounds better in this poem, I think – it sounds more delicate. :nod:

You're very welcome. :D

Oh, I just noticed I wrote "theatre" twice... I meant to write "theatre" and "theater". Well, whatever :D

Thanks! Well after reading your comment, I thought to myself - isn't origami all about giving life to paper? And here I wasn't even thinking about origami itself while writing this tanka. So, I have to thank you for inspiring me to think about it :)

:D Congrats on DD! おめでとうございます!

Lovely imagery. Also the sound -- lots of か/こ/く & the two instances of さ somehow make it sound really nice, plus the many words ending with an あ-step sound.

almost able to read it in 普通な日本語...so close to getting all the kanji, but not quite! but at least understood it in romanji

Aww i really like the mood of this one! (And for once I could even read it in Japanese without dictionary which just makes it even better). I'm really glad you decided to share your poems (and that you found the Japanese-Culture group too). :D
Thank you!

I'm happy I'm able to share my poems in this group and overall in dA, so I think I should be the one to thank you :) And it feels good when you can read kanji, right? :D

Actually I wrote first 4 verses really quickly, just came to me like that, but I had no idea for the last one, so I left it unfinished until I got something. How glad I am I didn't force myself to think, because when I finished it, I was really satisfied :D

Haha yeah it feels great! However sadly I'm doing really poor on that. I skipped about 3 years in learning japanese and practically lost everything. I alsot feel like I'm starting from zero. ='(

Aw I see. Yeah it was worth the waiting. ^^
