starlady: Aang with fire (aang can be asian & still save the world)

I just finished watching Avatar: The Last Airbender with [personal profile] unjapanologist. HOW SO AWESOME, SHOW!? I just want it to go on forever and ever and ever, amen. At least Legend of Korra comes out (sometime) next year… I will have more to say at some point.

On the walk back to the subway I made up a completely unrelated poem.

Kyoto at night
The wind rustles the rice fields
Between frogs and stars.


It's metrical if you pronounce the long vowel in 'Kyoto.'

And neither are you, alas.
Yet we do our best.

... what? Your tag was inspiring.

But yours is atmospheric! Of course that takes time.

Well, atmosphere is atmospheric, isn't it? And in Japanese, you can leave on syllable away for emphasis or something. At least that's what I learned.

Yeah, it's extra for emphasis.

three children race for ice cream
and a thump in the end

Avatar Yay! I have so few shows I get fannish about, but Avatar is it. I still need to get around to doing some rpg gaming around ATLA.

Avatar! My favorite USian TV show, for always. ♥ (Unless Korra turns out to be better.)

I spent an entirely unreasonable amount of time deciding which A:TLA icon to use on this comment. Clearly, I either have far too many A:TLA icons or not nearly enough.

I really like your haiku! The atmosphere is beautiful, and it evokes so many sensations. Thank you for sharing it!

Nice.

It's also metrical if you fail to slide into the -y- sound.
