Traffic light haiku quartet

green light--
a glimpse of a little girl
holding her tambourine

green light--
fading reverb of her

at the traffic light
discerning the sound of
different colors

busy junction
her tambourine glistens with
unknown song

Samsara haiku

holding his breath as deep
as he bows

shaking she-oak..
the way she tightens the straps
of her bikini

Gloomy afternoon haiku

afternoon gloom...
a lady at the reception
fakes her smile

siang yang kelam...
senyuman palsu

Flight of the herons haiga

First collaborative work with Teguh Santosa. Now I look forward to seeing another good piece of his. The haibun is already published on this blog but I just couldn't help myself when I saw this image.

Sharing the silence

the bamboo grove and I
surrender to the silence
this cold evening

Ponytail girl tanka

out of the mist
ponytail girl
as if i didn't see her

Morning bliss

morning bliss
songbird from the cherry tree
sounds like Norah

Never enough dancing haiku

never enough dancing
satintails to whispering wind
this steppe was

Racing homeward haiga

The sand of Nanganesa haibun

Nothing changed after two months as I step my feet back in the sand of Nanganesa beach.
They are there where they were; the cliff, the trees and fishing boats. The sky, too. Don't they move just a little somewhere?
Nothing changed. But this nothingness.


the sound
of waves—

the sound
of wave

Morning rush haiga
