The Taste of Green





"Another piece..."

"You`ll be a frog in your next life," my son says. Then, he croaks.

I don`t care about the future. Here and now – the special taste of matcha cheese cake. Matcha – the fine, powdered green tea, which is used for the tea ceremony! Our Japanese guide tells us what we will do tomorrow and leaves us.

Around the corner
a moss-covered path
leads to the Buddha

Piazza Tale


As always: for my husband red wine, for me white wine.


"When I was young, strangers complimented me."

"What was your last sentence, honey?"

"Strangers made compliments in my youth."

"Often?"

"No, not often. I was shy and had to wear glasses."

"A lot of women have to wear glasses."

"I was too stupid to recognize that I was quite pretty then. Today photos tell me that..."

"Salmon or lamb chops? Or better the vegetarian dish?"

As always: no coffee after lunch.

We walk across the footbridge and reach the piazza.

tiny shoots
in the greenhouse –

spring stroll
bedclothes airing
on windowsills

cherry blossoms
the jogger stops
to check his pulse

spring chill
tapping the barometer
one more time

barfly = Kneipenhocker
I`m happy about the suggestion "barflies" (haiku-forum), I had never heard before about barflies but I think that this expression works here (Eckkneipe.../local barflies...)
