10 non-haikus

 


10 non-haikus

- Seb Doubinsky (France)

 

 

night hangs outside
like a homeless on the corner
hoodie down on its eyes 
waiting for nothing
and having nowhere to go

 

*

 

the tic tic of the mind
the crack crack of the bones
the boom boom of the heart
so low so low so low
and yet
deafening

 

*

 

the huge cold night 
the splendidly useless stars
the eyes powerless and watching
the eyes containing more light than the day

 

*

 

you wonder if you exist
but does the leaf that falls
wonder if the tree exists? 

*

 

things we show
are seldom seen
as the eye selects
only the visible

 

*

 

quiet quiet quiet
is the night inside the room
only disturbed once in a while
by the quick flash of a dream
and the halted breath of the sleeper

 

*

 

rain and wind in the garden
two birds dart by and land in a tree
I watch from my window
like a ghost watches the living
from the comfort of its death

 

*

 

"I am nothing"
you sometimes say
forgetting that it takes
a body, many dreams, some nightmares,
a home, a city, a region, a land,
a sun, a moon, an infinity of stars
a whole planet, an entire galaxy
for you to utter those words

 

*

 

the leaves rustle

in the warm afternoon

- reading

 

*

 

you wave goodbye

I wave goodbye

the waves wave

the waves always wave
