Haiku out of Africa 016 008

Frankfurt am Main: July 2008

standing on the bridge

watching houseboats floating by

the water is dead

Haiku out of Africa 016 005

Like air

once I’ve let you in

I struggle to breathe you out

your essence remains

Sensory exploration

what hides in the dark?

explore the darkness without light

perceive the darkness

Haiku out of Africa 016 002

At night

when joy disappears

my soul flies into the dark

where I find your trail

Haiku out of Africa 006 010

Safeguard

bring balance bring time

protect me like a mantle

from a midnight lie

Timing

love me love me not

I’m an intricate woman

touch me touch me not

Haiku out of Africa 006 007

Unpredictable

the poems are like trails

one thought leading to the next

always a surprise
