Three Poems and a Haiku Sequence by Samo Kreutz




Hide and seek poem

 

concealing

behind the bushes

 

the abundance

of early spring breeze

and morning snow

 

but not far away

 

hidden

from everyone

 

tremendously famished soil all alone

 


Seeding time (a haiku sequence)

 

granny and grandson

sown in the garden

their quality time


 

planting seeds

all the career plans

of a little boy


 

rose seedlings

multiplied so rapidly

the girl's questions


 

the stars 

within his reach –

dandelion seeds

 


Bonfire

 

flaming

 

the whole world

and skies

 

as I approach to a blazing stack

 

even my beliefs

my prejudices and years

start to melt

 

just to become one more time

a child I used to know

 

once

 


Tempest within

 

my silent shouts

and your loud ones

 

gestures

of torrents

raging

 

all around

 

only to be more aware

that you are now a rainbow baby
