Haiku – FemkuMag

 

rattling china—
not daring to break
the silence

 
moonless night her phantom pregnancy

Haiku – Luca’s Lily Pad

 

blustery wind
kicking a leaf
into winter

 
Commentary by Luca Cenisi: Another great piece of work, where the unmarked cut at the end of line 1 gives continuity to a reading that favors a dynamic and fragile vision of reality, according to the aesthetic rule of shiori しをり. The exasperation of the movement, rendered through the use of terms such as ‘blustering’ and ‘kicking’, is partly mitigated by the (generally) soft and quiet image of winter in line 3, while the alliteration of the sound ‘i’ through the whole poem enhances a sense of clearness (kido 輝度) and adaptation.

Haiku – Autumn Moon

 

short days—
my shadow stretches
across the field

 

hedgehog
the deep sleep
of winter trees
