You make the fire
and I'll show you something wonderful
a ball of snow

Du mach' Feuer,
und ich werd' Dir was Schönes zeigen:
einen Ball aus Schnee.

Matsuo Bashō

Merry Christmas

Frohe Weihnacht.
Und Frieden auf Erden.
Und den Menschen ein Wohlgefallen.

Splendid Eyesolation

Diving deep
into the ocean of thoughts.
Scars of life.

Laughing Luesday*

* [For first time visitors]:
Typo in the title? Nah. It's just that I would not let a tiny T spoil an avantgardistic alliteration.

Bearing its fate,
watching those folks.
Who's ridiculous?

Sláinte, old man :)

Two world wars later
One boy became my father.
Today's his birthday.

Ban landmines

By landmines
one may easily lose a leg.
And more.

More Mistletoe

Fine tree for lovers.
But careful:
It's not all mistletoe
that looks as if it were . . .

No one's been kissing
under all the mistletoes.
Just ask the chimney.
