Haiku

 

still pool …
an otter dives
into itself

 

stiller Teich …
ein Otter taucht
in sein Selbst

 

 

silent snow
father’s untold
secrets

 

Schneestille
Vaters unausgesprochene
Geheimnisse

 

 

halo moon
the heavy heads
of sunflowers

 

Hof um den Mond
die schweren Köpfe
von Sonnenblumen
