returning home
three hours older--
clock strikes twelve

—Jörgen Johansson

About the author: My name is JÖRGEN JOHANSSON, living in Lidköping, Sweden, and I'm a member of the on-line CHERRY POETRY CLUB. I wrote my first haiku in April, 2001, and started, of course, to write in my native language, publishing a couple of haiku "pamphlets" on my own RIVER MAN publ. co. In March of 2003 I wrote my first haiku in English, and haven't looked back since; i now write DIRECTLY into English.

    feeling how fast
    time has passed
    three hours after forty years old

    my first twilight
    the passage of time -
    bright sunrays this autumn morn

    birthday balloons...
    the one that doesn't deflate

    echoes of silence
    running through the larch grove
    transparent morning

    thoughts of home
    off in the distant --
