Winter Haiku


Haiku 1

Summer is so short

A white skirt left on the beach

Winter is so long



Haiku 2


The ice flowers on

the window pane. A flute plays

and the rising moon



Haiku 3


The seagull on its

perch pole above the water

Naked we slowly enter




Haiku 4


The small whales leap and

dive in the sound. The sauna

sweat on our bodies




Haiku 5


Long the shore the ice

cracks in the ferry`s wake. The

moon slides on darkness



Haiku 6


New Year - so many

rockets scream next day - old year´s

rubbish fills the streets

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.
