Empty Dreams

sleepily thinking of you
reaching out my hand towards
the empty place by my side
knowing your thoughts
are not longer with me


gentle zephyr
fugacious kiss
touching lips

entangled hands
playful caresses
deep ardour

your embrace
surrounding me

Nacht Gang

träume – nachtgang durch
landschaften von andersheit
deine hand in meiner
komm! hör den herzschlag
spür meine melodie
schau meine gedanken

Übertragung ins Deutsche von Night Walk (vorhergehender Post)

Sedōka – eine japanische Gedichtform mit den max. Silben 5-7-7-5-7-7,
ähnlich dem Haiku und Tanka stellt er eine Unterordnung des Waka dar.

Tanka: Night Walk

dreaming – night walk through
landscapes of otherness
your hand in mine
come, listen to heartbeats
feel my tune, see my thoughts

Tanka is a form of Japanese poetry, similar to Haiku, but older and consisting of max. 5-7-5-7-7 Syllables.

Haiku: False Dreams

false cricket chirping
touching skins, blurred memories
forsaken bodies

Tanka: Enticing Melodies

green mead, frail blooming
birds’ enticing melodies
when you grasped my hand
dragging me into your dreams
swift overwhelming journey

Haiku: Blue Blooming

blue blooming, stormy
spring stroll, breeze of reverie
reverberant tune


Haiku: Night Walk

blurred moonset, night walk
fugacity of a dream
longing forlornly


Haiku: Clearing

spring air, clearing fog
restless strolling through blue night
sharp vision, soft dream


Haiku: Setting Sun

setting sun, moon rise
walk into a wakeful night
silenced daydreams



Haiku: Scent of Spring

scent of spring, birds’ song
gentle caress, warm embrace
remote reveries


Haiku: Thawing

delicate green buds
melting snow, thawing thoughts
tenderness, day dream


Haiku: Good Night

moon light, good night kiss
gentle embrace, tender joy
bittersweetest dream


Haiku: Tiptoeing

spring blossoms, warm smiles
fingers tiptoeing on skin
sweet dream whisperings

Haiku: White Lips

wintry trail, white lips
hazy kiss of vibrant dream
speechless reaching out
