Carpe Diem Haiku „Silver Birch“





Dressed in yellow
Like a Chinese Emperor
The Northern rulers


I’ve taken the picture North of Arkhangelsk at the White Sea near a village by the name of Lapominka. A poacher was vanishing between the birches just in front of me, carrying his rifle on the back.




Silver birches rest
Looking sadly at
The leaving wild geese



Birds have long gone
Lonely birch tree remains
Longing for Björk’s song




Bared birch trees
Wearing winter’s dress
Logs burning inside


(Ain't no ghost inside the fire)
