Ingo Cesaro: Independent Author

Looking in vain for
blossoms of magnolia –
among the branches.

A feather in my
hand left behind from the bird.
I can see the wind.

No empty seats left
but autumn grants us fog-banks –
outside the chapel.

One hundred publishings of bibliophile editions and international anthologies in haiku-style, partly with original artworks. Sponsorship by the German Haiku Society, member amongst others in German-Swiss P.E.N. and German Haiku Society.


Gert W. Knop: Author and Graphic Artist

last days of summer
leaves are dancing in the sun
a pair of ducks hide

quite after midnight
time disappears in silence
suddenly thunder

the song of a lark
so very slowly fading
after summer rain
