Haiku by Samo Kreutz




headwaters ...

flowing forcefully

a new-born's cry



a small boy imagining

me as an old man


forty days rain

soaked to the bone

her menopause


pilgrimage ...

a faithful companion

the juicy apple


smell of petunias

hunched underneath

Jesus on the cross


rough sea ...

entangled in plastic

his ashes


j'accuse ...

that crow's echo

in my dream
