Do You Speak Spanish Well

— ¿Habla usted bien 
español, Lou? — No hablo 
bien español, Juan.


Spanish-to-English translation:

Yo no se que clase de poema es este. Pensaba de quel el haiku es un corto poema de algo en la naturaleza y no un comentario de quien habla una lengua bien o no. Si el numero de silaba esta bien, pero no es suficiente como para llamamrlo in haiku. El haiku, sigun entiendo es in poema de japon donde el poeta da comemntario de un aspect de la naturaleza que ha cautivado su mente. Gracias, Luis A. Estable
