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

Christmas countdown

the candy canes

shrink some more

xxxx

New Year’s Day

still searching

for the last line

xxxx

day after Christmas

the street beggar’s blanket

of gift wrap

xxxx

family Christmas

bending lower

for grandma’s kiss

first frost

father brewing summer

into cider

birds on a wire my crowded thoughts

xxxx

fleeting clouds

a glimpse of the pain

she tries to hide

Very pleased to appear in the October issue of Failed Haiku

 

another year

makes no difference

your absence

 

closing her eyes my last letter unread

 

memories at midnight the crumbs in my bed

 

IV line

falling faster

my tears

 

monkey bars

trying to grasp

grown up
