Photo and pressed flower art by the author.

Bild und Karte aus gepressten Blumen von Autorin.

English:

When loving is hard
go where fading holds the heart
like a dry flower.

Swahili:

Kama penzini ni pagumu
sitiri moyo wako na kumbukumbu
kama ua lililokaushwa.

German:

Wenn Liebe schwer fällt
halte Dein Herz wie
eine getrocknete Blume.

* When translating the original poem to Swahili and German, the syllabic rules of traditional haiku were not adhered to.
