Haiku of Agim Vinca


PARADOX

I spoke, they said: quiet!
I kept quiet, they said: speak!
speak/quiet, quiet/speak my life.

EXILE

I wander around the world.
friendless, jobless.
less and less of me.

BIRDS

the only passengers
passing the border
without passports.

ROADS

roads are not measured by miles.
roads are not measured by kilometers.
roads are measured by the heart.

GODS

it,s easy to believe in God.
in Man difficult.
Oh God!

POET IN PRISON

it,s all in vain.
here is my shadow.
I am beyond the shutters.

FREEDOM

earth, water, sun, air
what is freedom waiting for?
to be brought tied up in blood chains?!
