Following Matsuo Bashō II

misty harbour
gentle wind reveals
its secrets


winter twilight
enters the subway station
street violinist


frosty morning
strokes my cheeks
warm from the bakery


mountain village
for first time on TV
last interpreter


snowy busches
step by step more white
haiku walk


scout camp
at the last bonfire
first love


convalescence –
in the family album
blood donor’s photo
