it’s summer solstice /

the red phoenix is rising /

unchain your laughter.

es ist Sommersonnenwende /

der rote Phönix steigt /

befreien dein Lachen.

wordpress haiku #78

virgo’s brightest star…

spica basks in the moon’s glare…

we absorb your strength…

 

der hellste Stern von virgo …

Spica sonnt sich im grellen Licht des Mondes …

Wir nehmen deine Stärke …

 

This evening – June 14, 2016 – the moon couples up with Spica, Virgo’s brightest star. But the moon is heading toward bright Mars.

caught in my own reflection /

between Saturn and the Sun /

ich gebe zu … zu Wiederholung …
