Ene… – Song inspired haiku challenge


std fear


Siger mig, vil du?
Hvornår alt bli’r så stille,
Skat, er du ene?



After posting my silly haiku, a while back, Carolina decided to host a new challenge mixing music and poetry. Everyone is welcome to join the challenge, and all your need  to do is choose a song, and write a haiku using the words that inspire you the most in the lyrics. Then create a pingback to Carolina’s post, here.


Today’s inspiration for the challenge was “Masser af succes” from Gasolin’.


Translation, for the Danish-impared 😉


Tell me, will you?
When everything goes so quiet,
Darling, do you feel lonely?

    1. Thank you 🙂 Just let me know, because I only rely on my self-taught Danish… Is my haiku actually making sense? 😛 I believe it fits my translation… but I am still missing all the subtelties of the language.

  1. My God! … you are making things so complicated! I have only a rudimentary grasp on English and still less on Haiku. But the very conformist nature of traditional poetry structure (and hence song lyrics) make song lyrics incompatible with haiku.

    At least I think so.

    But I’m not Danish.

    1. I know, I know… I don’t expect anyone to go the Danish-tune-inspired-haiku way 😛 I am just a masochist danophile 😉 But you probably knew that already, hehehe


    1. I still love it… I hadn’t realized it had been such a long time since my last attempt. I am glad you enjoyed this one 🙂 Now you’ve been tagged, hehehehe your turn! 🙂
