I thought this might be a good opportunity to practice the language in ways that aren't yet covered. I've heard there are threads like this in the Facebook group, but I haven't had Facebook in quite a while.

I came up with this one a couple of weeks ago or so:

pumtaH chal pengmey

‘eng 'emvo’ nubejtaH jul

ghIchDaj 'angvIp nuch

"the sky's torpedoes are falling

the sun is watching us from behind a cloud

the coward is afraid to show its nose"

Here's one I posted on the LiveJournal "klingon" community many moons ago:

https://klingon.livejournal.com/8315.html

Sormeyvo' pum por
ngajchoH pem 'ej nI'choH ram
ghoStaH DIS poH bIr

Leaves are falling from the trees
Days grow shorter, nights grow longer
Winter is approaching

Nowadays, we have qImroq for a season but back then I went with DIS poH.
