three monoku by Réka Nyitrai

within a  matchbox unfurling a rainbow 
pig and I rooting for strawberries



how many matchboxes a skyscraper?



Réka Nyitrai lives in Bucharest, Romania. She was born in Transylvania, a land that she truly considers magic. She studied communication and political marketing. She always felt attracted to poetry, especially to short forms, however she only started writing haiku since 2018, early spring. She mostly writes experimental, surreal, psychological oneliners.
Her work has been published in Under the Basho, Failed Haiku, #FemkuMag, Otata, Frameless Sky, Scryptic  and The Asahi Shimbun.
