There’s a lot of crazy stuff in Japan. Crazy cool, crazy beautiful, and just plain old crazy.
So every Friday I’d like to show off a small sampling of that craziness with a photo I’ve taken while living here and adorn it with a lovingly crafted haiku poem. I’ll bribe my wife to add her own inspired poem as well, and if inspiration hits me in the balls then I may include a Japanese one as well.
Here’s this week’s photo, taken at a 100-yen store nearby our apartment:
My English haiku:
Hey man have you heard?
Chair socks – they’re like socks for chairs
Chairs get cold feet too
Abbey’s English haiku:
Oh so elegant
The chair socks, fuzzy and warm
Now let’s try them on
My Japanese haiku:
(An old woman with no children)
(Puts socks on a chair)
(It will never grow up)
