World Haiku Series 2019 (158)
Haiku by Réka Nyitrai
within a stone the river talks in its sleep
Under the Basho, 2019
a red sock
the shape of my ear
in its shadow

trying to send me a message?
an earthworm sings

During the Winter of 2018 either Réka Nyitrai found haiku or haiku found Réka Nyitrai through her very first poem that simply came off the top of her head: “on a snow covered branch … yesterday’s bird-songs”.
Since then she keeps writing haiku, mainly surreal and psychological ones and cherita.
So far, she has been published in Under the Basho, Failed Haiku, Wales Haiku Journal, Harusame, is/let, Otata and The Asahi Shimbun.
Lastly, here are photos taken by a friend of Ms. Réka Nyitrai’s, Ms. Veronica Iwanaga, who resides in Japan.
Ms. Iwanaga kindly and delightedly presented her photos for the World Haiku Series 2019.
