first, a little background. i'm taking a class on Classical Japanese lit and we're doing poetry right now. on 2/7 we're having a poetry contest and we're supposed to prepare poems about the spring and love and crap like that. anyway, i wrote this instead (so far). its in the wakastyle. that is, the sylable count goes 5-7-5-7-7. other important information is that in japanese, the word for "five" is "go". that being said...

the wind blows gently
a river murmurs softly
blue and gold flash by
a dust cloud swiftly follows
a chorus screams "GO GO GO"

no, its in english. i don't know near enough japanese to translate the whole thing. the only part thats in japanese (sort of) is the "go go go", which is a pun between english meaning, well, "go" and the japanse for "5", so its a cheer to go fast but also for 555.
