On Poetry and Culture Shock

A tall man.

One tree in the desert,
A tall man waiting.
He has never seen the flowers.

Un árbol en el desierto,
Un hombre alto que espera.
Nunca ha visto las flores.

Flower woman asks an innocent question.
A green smile and no answer.

Mujer-flor hace una pregunta inocente.
Una sonrisa verde, y ninguna respuesta.

Two of my oldest haikus. They were not meant to go together, although they are about the same man.
