invisible tracks, haiku and quanta poems by Dietmar Tauchner


Categories: ,


Dietmar Tauchner continues his exploration of the relationship between words and time in invisible tracks, his third full-length collection for Red Moon Press. As Lorin Ford notes, “invisible tracks: Haiku & quanta poems engages us with a many-layered world in which the old and the new, the small and the great, the mundane and the fabulous dance together unhindered. Tauchner wears his considerable intelligence lightly. A sense of wonder, even awe, pervades these poems yet humor is never far away. Tauchner is the haiku poet writing at ‘the point of intersection of the timeless with time.’” Dietrich Krusche adds, “Die Gedichte in Unsichtbare Spuren sprechen mich an. Ich erlebe jedes Mal einen poetischen Einfall, der sich in mir vollzieht. Besonders reizvoll, da unerwartbar, finde ich das Aufrufen anderer “globaler” Kontexte: Naturwissenschaft und existentielle (Selbst-)Reflexion.”

     am Ende des Tagesbleibt niemand real

     at the end of the day nobody remains real

          open rose
          a sound out of
          the invisible

          blühende Rose
          ein Geräusch aus dem

     speed of night
     somewhere beyond the big bang
     i am a unicorn

     irgendwo jenseits des Urknalls
     bin ich ein Einhorn
