The Art of Approximation

Translation is all

from Japanese to Hungarian

from Icelandic to Navajo

from bark to miaow

from day to diary

from body language to words

from sheet to music

from vision to canvas

from you to me

and me to you

all shall be vice versa

here are my poems

they are original

but we are not fluent in each other

I speak me and you speak you

so I have translated them

knowing that languages

can only ever co-exist

it takes merely a second

to discover that

only the non-verbal is universal.
