sous la lune
je prends les baies rouges
pour les bourgeons


moonlit red berries
mistaken for blossoms



Picked on 8 September ’14

I stop running
sound of a leaf touching other leaves
on its way down


walking home
at the same pace as the man ahead
in the clacking shoes

rando sous la pluie
feuilles sèches et noisettes
sur la table de pique-nique


hiking in the rain
fallen leaves and a hazelnut
on the picnic table

sous le pommier
les pommes tombées et moi
à regarder le coucher de soleil


under the apple tree
the fallen apples and me
looking at the sunset

la tristesse s’en va
en égrenant
les groseilles

running the redcurrents
through my fingers
— the sadness disappears


perfume of the rose
from the heart
filled with the rain water

before and after meditation
the mosquitoes


meditating in my parents house
bowing to Jesus
and my favourite childhood teddy bear



Picked on 9 August ’14

end of the day peace
dozens of faded hydrangea blooms
on the top of the compost pile



Picked on an August night ’14

Wow, it’s been such a long time that I have not posted anything new, but, well, I think my marriage and the following vacation can partly explain my silence.
Here I am again, happy to reconnect with you my dear readers!
Have fun and take care everyone!


our last night in Liguria
the half moon
starts getting rounded

over the summer evening
better than my haiku

averses orageuses
le vent n’a pas chassé
la lune de jour


stormy showers
the wind didn’t chase away
the day moon

ombre sur ombre
la corneille survolant
le cerisier


shadow through shadow
a crow overflying
the cherry tree

chestnut petals

comme un brise-glace
passer par une volée de feuilles mortes
brise de printemps



Picked on 29 April ’14

first time this year
the smell of freshly mowed hay –
nothing else


pour la première fois cette année
l’odeur des foins –
rien à ajoutter



Picked on 28 April ’14

the stem getting
thinner and thinner
before it flourishes


sound of the caress
on the tulip petals –
my mom’s getting out of depression


Picked up on 23 April ’14

après avoir parlé
ma tête pleine
de l’odeur des foins


after the talk
my head filled up
with the smell of hay
