Myku by Genki

(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

My belly relaxes
Welcome winds of spring


late 1980s, Tsukuba, Japan
