Imago lacus

The picture above was taken by a dear friend, the American poet Debra Kang Dean (please do not use it without permission). I met Debra three years before, when I went to Walden to work with his late husband Brad, a great Thoreau scholar.

Otros tres de Susana Benet-en hiru haiku gehiago

Hoy nos ha llegado el verano y, de refresco, algo de zirimiri: la lluvia menuda de Susana Benet. / Ezin izan ditut hamazazpikotan utzi, baina hiru hauekin konforme geratu naiz hala ere:

Cómo me calma
el olor de mi casa.
Perra costumbre.

Etxeko usainak
nola baretzen nauen.
Usadio petrala.

No se conocen.
Barriendo, el peluquero
junta sus pelos.

Ezezagunak.
Ile-apaintzailearen
erratzak batu ditu.

Tras la vitrina
el carnicero tiene
ojos de buey.

Harakinak
idi begiak ditu
erakusleihoan.

Susana Benet
Lluvia menuda (La veleta, 2007)
