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

    I’m no longer sure where you are getting your information,
    but good topic. I must spend some time finding out much more or figuring out more.
    Thank you for wonderful info I used to be in search
    of this info for my mission.

    • Thank you Gay. I’m glad you enjoyed the haiku. I am not sure to which information you refer. If it is the German translation, the haiku journal Chrysanthemum does the translations.
