POEM TRANSLATION HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 428
furrow on her face
exudes love from eyes, cuddles
newborn in darkness
The above haiku/senryu is inspired by photo-haiku challenge by Susi Bocks in her blog, I WRITE HER. She has just informed me that the original painting was by Egon Schiele, an Austrian, died at an early age of 28 years. His Expreessionism ,with twisted shapes and dark lines, had gained both praise and blame. The striking visual is a Newborn for haiku/senryu writers in an age of dark dying genre; impregnated by love and warmth to provide poetry an upside down perspective.
