Egrets Reading

Three of my haiku (in French!) on Temps Libres

Serge Tomé of Liège, Belgique has a new project on his Temps Libres website. It’s called US! The many faces of its people and culture...

Serge’s goal with this project is counterbalance the negative image of the US in Europe, especially in the French-speaking world, with a haiku project that will show, as he puts it, “a different, more real, face of the US.”

He is translating all haiku into French. Serge requested three of my haiku for his project and they are on this page, both in English and French:


My favorite is his translation of my "roadside bison" haiku:

bison en bord de route
le cowboy braque
sa camera digitale

I don't know French, but I think this one looks particularly cool.
