Contemporary Haiku

So it’s July already, the beginning of the second part of the year and I have been procrastinating for long enough. I have had quite a lot of poetry and some microfiction published over the years but I’ve never posted it all in one place, so I plan to start posting here regularly till I catch up.

Here is my haiku as it appeared in the excellent online bilingual journal Cryanthemum.

soaring higher
than her top note

steigt höher
als ihre höchste Note
