Some haiku for the weekend

Four haiku to consider for the weekend – Bluebell woods is by one of IS&T's regular contributors Phuoc-Tan Diep while the remaining three – Berlin, Proust and Buddha are by Ken Head, whose work has also been published in IS&T over the summer.


Blood in bluebell woods,
where wolves walk and humans stalk
with silver bullets.


Berlin haiku
Blazing graffiti
calculated defiance
freedom knows no walls


Proust haiku
How cruel now are those
madeleines of memory
that once seemed so sweet


Buddha smiles broadly
forever he laughs and laughs
he has seen the joke
