Three Poems and a Haiku Sequence by Samo Kreutz

Hide and seek poem



behind the bushes


the abundance

of early spring breeze

and morning snow


but not far away



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






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




Tempest within


my silent shouts

and your loud ones



of torrents



all around


only to be more aware

that you are now a rainbow baby
