Myku by Genki

Myku
(Watashi no English-language haiku)
by Genki   元気


Cold morning washroom
Lit up grey around my face
My father's stubble


My smile is wider
Greeting a familiar face
Whose name I forgot


reawakened stress
frosty dawn barely witnessed
the sound of water


encircled craving
one bite leads to another
another plate to wash


Crack!
My belly relaxes
Welcome winds of spring
