I am already a pensioner, but keeping my activity both is work and literature. I used to be a trading and marketing expert of chemicals. I started my literature life with limericks, editing four books and participating in other published materials. A bit later I started to write haiku. So far I have not published a book of my own haiku, but I have published them in Hungarian and in English as well. I am a member of the Hungarian Haiku Club, working in the frame of the Hungarian-Japanese Friends’ Society, and also I am member of the World Haiku Association, where I am also publishing haiku.

Selected Work
 
The life comes out
once again from the cold Earth
Ever expectance!
 
Friends are whom know you,
and in spite of everything,
they still love you!
 
 
 
The gorgeous May rain
is irrigating my land—
really worth gold
 
The thirty fifth
Anniversary meeting—
Time’s flying quickly
 
 
 
It is better to share
your tears with your best friend.
It helps to dry them up
 
In the company
of our good hearty friends—
time passes quickly
