distant waterfall--
her gray hair swings
with spring breeze

twilight sky
with floating clouds
a long journey
before I could  travel
the rain-soaked distance

old footbridge--
the school kids busy counting
cherry blossoms

стар мост –
учениците заети в броене
на вишневи цветчета

Pravat Kumar Padhy, India (Indija)

paddy fields--
the sun for a while
pretends in green

*
pirinčana polja –
na trenutak sunce
pozelenelo

full moon
peeps through the roof
the street dweller
tightly holds the thread
of hope against  wild  thunder

a dragonfly above

old monument
every brick cements
a different story

*
altes Baudenkmal
jeder Ziegel zementiert
eine andere Geschichte

 ***

how long
can I follow you
shifted horizon

*
wie lang
kann ich dir folgen
verschobener Horizont
