The Netherlands Haiku

Netherlands Haiku

silence broken

by the soft breezes

the pond is stirred

we walk among those hills

leave our wooden shoes behind

June at Carpe Diem

half timbered houses
abut the hill – an eagle’s nest
full of family warmth

A small line of sun
between the curtains:
dust on mahogany


Een klein streepje zon
tussen de gordijnen door:
stof op mahonie


Each time
I try to smile I also
show my teeth.


Elke keer als ik
probeer te lachen laat ik
ook mijn tanden zien.


© Willem Johan van der Molen (1923-2002)

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Never stop writing. Never let others dictate what you can or can’t do – do what your heart tells you. You have talent, so please let it shine 🙂
