A Sunday Haiku

Pensive | Marseille | 2016

A tranquil morning
fish wonder who will eat them
thoughts drift out to sea

Last night I went to a poetry and blues evening with Fitzgerald Kusz reading poems to the legendary blues play of Klaus Brandl. The two Nuremberg cultural greats pulled off an awesome show. After a mega intense work week in Portland this combination of poetry in frankonian dialect and blues really slowed me down and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was never a big reader of poetry. Maybe the combination of music and words did the trick, I was really fascinated by the poems about day to day life scenes. And I loved Fitzgerald Kusz’s frankonian Haikus.

When back home I read about what makes a Haiku and the basic rules. Thanks for the know how the web provides. This morning I wrote my first Haiku. Photography and Haiku is also a combination that could go well together. I believe in cross-pollination !

Don’t be to hard on me 😉 ! Have a blessed and sunny Sunday!
