# # A Sudden Turn (With Haiku Version - My Very First!)

A SUDDEN TURN (original version)

a fish darts forward

as water lilies re-arrange in the water

centered, in the moment


til it once again flits by

or a bird swoops down as suddenly

from the sky

A SUDDEN TURN (Haiku version)

a fish darts forward

water lilies re-arrange

space in the water


moment unbroken

til fish again flits by, or

bird swoops down from high

Epiphany In Times Square

Would I have recognized you
In the middle of Times Square
Among a billion strangers
Rushing here and there

If our eyes met
Would I recognize the fire
Those burning eyes
That madman's smile

[Hata Bildir]
