NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 19, 2021
With his 2020 anthology, “Day by Day Time Folding Time” (published by Trafford Publishing), Ralph Günther Mohnnau introduced an exciting new voice in the world of poetry.
This year, the author and poet launches a new press campaign for his book in hopes of reaching a wider audience, especially those who have passion for the art of Japanese haiku.
“Day by Day Time Folding Time” is a creative collection of 99 haikus that reflects what life is like every day. Each piece has a corresponding English and German translation, thus allowing readers to appreciate the poetry in both languages. The haiku, with its direct form of expression and the simplicity of its words, is enriched with themes of love — to life, mankind and the world. Mohnnau believes that the book will appeal to those who are fascinated by the exotic form of Japanese poetry.
A haiku from the book (in English and German language) reads:
nächtlicher flug: auf
den tragflächen spiegelt sich
das licht des vollmonds
nocturnal flight: on
wings reflecting back the sheen
of the full moon's light
“Day by Day Time Folding Time” is published with companion collections: “Sowing Nightshade in the Wastelands of Cities” and “On the Tidings of Time”— also available from Trafford Publishing.

About the Author
Ralph Günther Mohnnau was born in 1937 in Bad Keuznach, Germany. An early interest in the poetry of the Middle Ages and Expressionism, as well as painting and ballet, led to his studies in English and romance languages, earning him degrees in law and philosophy from the Universities of Mainz, Freiburg, and the Paris Sorbonne. Foreign studies took him to Greece, Egypt, North America, Africa, and Canary Islands, crediting his personal encounters with Martin Heidegger, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Charles Bukowski, Joan Miro, and John Cage as significant influences on his creative work. Mohnnau has written and edited more than 260 books. All are available in the list published by the German National Library under dnb.de (search Mohnnau).
