Luxuries, 6 (on Audio and as Text)

Dear visitor, I am posting my weekly HAIKU not only on audio but also as text this time. My Turkish and German translations appear under their designated headings. What I hope to be a more convenient approach for anyone with potential audio-issues comes to you with my heartfelt thanks to a very dear poet friend, Jean-Jacques Fournier, for his suggestion in this direction. (Thank you also for being an avid reader of my poetry and for leaving your precious comments for me to cherish, dearest Jean-Jacques!)

a luxury

eager ants at work
hauling loads bigger than life
never losing hope

(In Turkish Translation)

bir lüks

iş başında gayretli karıncalar
hayattan büyük yükler taşımaktalar
asla kaybetmeden umudu

(In German Translation)

ein Luxus

eifrige ameisen . . . fleissig bei der arbeit
schleppen gewichte . . . schwerer als das leben
die hoffnung geben sie nie auf

  1. Pardon the delay for expressing my very sincere thanks for the honour you favour me with by re-blogging my poem of “I Am The Colour – of human disorder – It is one I like, and by you’re doing so reminds me to do a recital of it.
    And for the key issue… this haiku of your Luxuries #6, is stupendous and of an indelible matter, that embraces a level of mental power and the wherewithal man requires to survive, and sadly may ne’er achieve in time to to do so.

    • My dearest Jean-Jacques, you always leave me speechless with your comments of eloquence, deep thought, and continuous support. I am grateful for your presence as a poet and as a true friend. I thank you for your moving words about my HAIKU. All I know is that I just have to write, write, write and write again. As always, my best wishes are with you and with all your loved ones!
