Chrysanthemum 26, fall issue

Happy to have two poems of mine poems published and translated into German in Chrysanthemum 26, fall issue edited by Beate Conrad.


leaf after leaf
the silence falls
between us

harvest moon
the last sparkle
of summer grass

Otata, September 2019

Grateful to have four haiku of mine featured in Otata, issue September 2019 edited by John Martone. These are my poems:


upturned shells
the sound of sea
buried in the sand

conchiglie rovesciate
il suono del mare
sepolto nella sabbia

Beech tree
the long roots
of childhood memories

albero di faggio
le lunghe radici
dei ricordi d’ infanzia

ancient oven
in my grandmother’s hands
freshly band bread

antico forno
nelle mani di mia nonna
pane appena sfornato

already autumn
the last dance
of the birch leaves

già autunno
l’ultima danza
delle foglie di betulla

empty church
a trail of incense
still ascends to the sky

solar eclipse
bouncing shadows
from dark to light

Otata, October 2019

Otata, October 2019, edited by John Martone.
These are my two contributions:


fallen leaves
no one knows
his fate

foglie cadute
nessuna conosce
il suo destino

autumn dusk
the leaves changing
from yellow to red

tramonto d’autunno
le foglie cambiano
dal giallo al rosso

autumn wind
the smell of chestnuts
wherever I go

vento d’autunno
profumo di castagne
ovunque io vada
