Haiku. Haikai. Tanka


tramontana in
aadrid light on light melts
black into corners
daylight flickers furtively
On the blade of mack the knife.

*Tramontana: summer tempest.


the window open,
the fleeting rider has passed
& will not return.


in a high window
faire green marijuana
springs in southern light.


to a wilting weed.

under the silver
moon drink night´s water in shade,
embrace dawn & bloom.


black chrome gleams silk sheen,
a black madrid night shining
through african dust.


my brother is on
the ridge & I on the bridge,
below, same suburbs.


day descends darkly
entertaining hidden winds
yet to be unleashed.


leave o morning fly
for by twilight you will die
'neath another sky


august's golden sun
died in a blaze of glory
september's bloom falls.


full september moon
waxes silver on silver
birch fly agaric.


high kite (haikai)

the glorious day
burgeoning in golden haze
again the same.

a one line poem
whose middle in memory
begins in ending.

the blue lemur hawk
high in the valley hovers
over the buzzards.



monk in beggar's rags
meticulously copies
in ink word for word
in order not to forget
as our feet tread over him


hiroshima fall
ancient imperial to
blight & suicide


bleep, bleep Robot Star,
lonely blue skies lonelier
still lonely blue eyes.


run of the arrow.

a whisky sodden
sioux under the prairie sun
sombrero to nose
amidst the sky's buried dead
tells ghosts their tribes are no more.

* * * * * * *

new world symphony,
grandiose, dramatic, tragic,
romance in triumph,
magnificent, glorious,
tranquil innocent truth.


sierra norte de madrid

high window skyline:
mountain darkness mixes in
city light´s distance.

from the mountain´s edge
purple clouds sail by a high
window wind rattles.

purple cloud spectrum
blacks out in a high window,
now only the wind.


la baranca*

on the slope, only
rock faces distanced in mine,
as we bid farewell.

*the slope.


skylines. (i)

winter combines light:
familiar scenery
parts in difference.

dormant landscapes lay
slumbering dreaming beneath
the window´s skyline.

obscure over
images summer lifted
only to dazzle.


skylines. (ii)

way of the white clouds:
snow melts on distant mountains,
so seem the white clouds.

no clouds move, below
a city spellbound under
vermillion streak.

sounds invisible,
as if bird´s wing could break through
the sound barrier.


yet the ridge, still grits
its teeth for coming frost bite,
grimly, to determine.



coin in a fountain:
a splash, pool ripples, coin sinks,
there is no sound chink.
afference & efference
drawn to stillness, the coin blinks.

coin in a fountain:
it gleams beyond reach for alms,
children´s arms refract.
cascadence is the cadence,
airborne to water´s silence.

coin in a fountain:
i stare down to the bottom,
face upon water.
the hand that spun the coin is
the sound of one hand clapping.
