Haiku in English and German

 

lingering snow . . .
my shadow shivers
on the stream

 

verweilender Schnee …
mein Schatten fröstelt
auf dem Bach

 

 

scent of rain . . .
gulls pull the clouds
across the lake

 

Regengeruch …
Möwen ziehen die Wolken
über den See

 

 

morning chill –
a chiffchaff
brings in the spring

 

Morgenkühle —
ein Zilpzalp
bringt den Frühling mit sich

Haiku

 

winter evening
I find a pressed primrose
between pages

Haiku

 

river mist —
the sound of wings
at twilight

 

immortelle . . .
her perfume lingers
in the day room

lingering snow
grandfather’s silent

Senryu

 

(rarer than) hen’s teeth
whatever-this-is
between us

 

 

honest salesman—
the transparency
of a jellyfish

Senryu

 

Alzheimer’s—
a balloon on a stick
says get well soon

 

lost voice –
the doctor searches
with a camera

 

silver slipper moon—
I fail to fit
his image of me

 

#shithole
my neighbour builds
a higher fence
