We are delighted to host yet another selection of haikus by Herman van Rompuy, former President of the European Council. 
These haikus were originally written in French.

 

Singing and whispering

Hearing with open ears

The world is far away

               ***

Reading slowly by the sea

The waves are dying nearby

Long sighs

             ***

The trees and the sea

Give life to the wind

Blowing and raging
