EUROPEAN TOP 100 – 2019

Per il terzo anno consecutivo, sono nella top 100 degli autori di haiku in Europa, insieme a molti amici Haikuists internazionali. Sono felice di questo perché questo genere poetico scandisce la mia vita da molti anni e soprattutto nel 2019, mi sono trovata a scrivere haiku e senryu, nei posti più impensabili (sale d’attesa di ospedale, in metropolitana, di notte nella mia mente, durante giornate molto difficili). Poche parole per coniugare lo spirito e la natura che spesso racconta molto di noi. Credo che sia questo il vero senso della poesia.
Grazie a Krzysztof Kokot per questo onore e complimenti a tutti.🎋🎋🎋
