autumn dusk—
a red sock
goes missing

秋の夕暮れ

赤い靴下

行方不明になる

 

falling leaf
the shape of my ear
in its shadow

落ち葉

私の耳の形

その影に

 

is father
trying  to send me a message?
an earthworm sings

父は

私にメッセージを送ろうとしていますか?

ミミズが歌う

quinces in autumn light—
the longing for my homeland

one black umbrella
among many colorful

1本の黒い傘

多くのカラフルなものの中で

 

Buddha face—
sunflowers in a wooden
wheelbarrow

 

仏の顔

ひまわり

木製の手押し車の中に

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.
