俳句中文 – paiju zhongwen

Below is a Chinese haiku, or paiju zhongwen (俳句中文). I wrote this at a time when I was actively developing my knowledge of Mandarin.

这里是晚上。
现在她在做晚饭。
晚饭很好吃。

Here is the pinyin romanization of the characters above. Note the 5-7-5 syllable construction:

zheli shi wanshang.
xianzai ta zai zuo wanfan.
wanfan hen hao chi.

And finally, for those who cannot read Chinese, the transliteration of this ridiculously simple text:

This is the evening.
Now she is cooking dinner.
Dinner tastes delicious.

  1. Thanks, Bianc. Bravery is often either obliviousness or downright stupidity, however.

    This might be one of the latter.
