Hong Kong Haikus

by Roxana Bouwer

In December of 2014 I found myself on a ferry in Honk Kong Harbour. My cellphone, which was also my camera for the trip, was too low on battery for me to take pictures of the city kaleidoscope that is Hong Kong by night. I’m glad because I wrote these haikus about what I saw and felt instead. The place is magic – a colouring-in book for adults.

Night Lights

City rainbow sparks

making dark water twinkle

lights move like heartbeats

Electric Disposition

A colour palette

The endless spring, made by us

Energy exhales
