A Day At The Festival: A Haiku Sequence - Poem by Chenou Liu

two Chinese dressed
in Lederhosen and Dirndls
Munich's blue sky

Italians sing
Bavarian drinking songs
a German girl's smile

Oktoberfest
a sea of human heads
inside the beer tent

House of Horrors
hand in hand an old couple
giggling

slanted sunlight
in my gingerbread heart
her bite mark

a roller coaster
against the sunset sky
Sayonara


note:

Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held annually in Munich, Germany, which kicks off today. Last year, this world-famous event attracted just short of 7 million party-goers worldwide.

    I sense a certain amount of international celebration in this piece, it feels wonderfully modern and yet wonderfully ancient as well. (Report) Reply
