Hansha Teki

Born 1949 somewhat north of Auckland, Aotearoa/New Zealand
Residing in the Wellington region of Aotearoa/New Zealand 

A passerby, well past the midway point, making brief notes in short-form verse along the way.


not yet dead
a novelist adjusts
his dustjacket

LSA - September 2016

overheard
I become another's
second person

LSA - September 2016

sanctuary light
my shadow settles back
into itself

otata 8; August 2016 

by candle-light
words fall further than
where we end

otata 6; June 2016 

in memory of Jane Reichhold

filling in
between fragment and phrase
an empty space

LSA - September 2016

a child screams
"I can't feel my brain"
moonless sky

awake at dawn
I touchscreen my timeline
into being

writer's block—
his reflection hogs
the limelight

failed haiku 1 - January 2016

in my image the fog of war

failed haiku 1 - January 2016

in spring
the leap from noun
to verb
