Delighted to appear in the new issue of ‘Le Lumachine’ issue n. 31 on the theme “The contemporary Tanka, in Italy and in the world”

 

 

swallows leave

with the silence

my fears

of dying

alone

Thrilled to appear in the new issue of Scryptic !

crashing waves
the silence
of an empty shell
xxx
broken jigsaw
trying to fit
myself together
xxx
another dawn
I claw back
to dreams
xxx
still no news
another leaf deep
in silence
xxx
no signal
the emptiness
in her eyes
xxx
last words
no longer time
to make up
xxx
much weaker now
drawers still full
of a former self
xxx
daises
a field full of childhood
innocence
xxx
your eyes
reflecting the pain
no more
xxx
storm clouds
the fading light
in your eyes
