5 New Haiku

by Adjei Agyei-Baah

 

1
Harmattan fires
the forest crackles
in tongues

2
evening star —

a drop of dew falls

from the web

 

3
refugee camp

beneath a flying kite

a cross of hope

 

4

household barrel

the secret bathing

of the moon

5

Kilimanjaro —

in tourists' conversation

Fuji comes and goes!

roasting sun

the egret's measured steps

in buffalo shadow

10 Haiku from Afriku

by Adjei Agyei-Baah

1

drought--

the farmer digs

into his breath

 

2

season of migration

the lightning dash

of a late egret

 

3

full moon

the scarecrow watches

its own shadow

 

4

Harmattan winds
crossing the border
with leaves


5

roasting sun

an egret’s measured steps

in buffalo shadow

6
leafless tree
lifting a cup of nest
to the sky

7

dry savanna

the dotted castles

of anthills

8
dawn rivalry--
a muezzin
and rooster

9
deserted shore
the wind sharpen its voice
over a conch


10
all that remain
of a lost tribe's story--
scratches and scars
