Kreischen der Kreide / the screech of chalk, haiku of Ralf Bröker


Categories: ,


“Ralf Bröker’s debut haiku and tanka collection Kreischen der Kreide / the screech of chalk takes the reader on a poetic journey that traverses the universal truths of everyday life. At the same time this book of small poems highlights the technology-driven alienation in the modern family. A gifted poet who writes both in German and English, we are fortunate to have Bröker’s own English translations of his original German haiku and tanka in this concise yet powerful volume.”

— Roberta Beary

     mein Sohn fragt mich
     ob ich stolz sei

     father’s day
     my son asks me
     if i am proud

               alles vergessen
               weil du weinst
               rhetoric workshop
               i forget everything
               because you cry
