Navajo song
reaching to the sky
an old prayer

cave paintings
the twinkling stars
covered in dust

Etruscan runes
the forgotten words
of ancestors

clllll

piccoli fiocchi di neve
le parole giuste
per dire addio

tiny snowflakes
the right words
to say farewell

cielo invernale
una stella solitaria attraversa
la via Lattea

winter sky
a lonely star crosses
Milky Way

mille lucciole
le fate dei boschi giocano
a nascondino

a thousand fireflies
the woods fairies play
hide and seek

diario di guerra
quando nessuno di noi
guardava le stelle

war diary
when none of us
looked the stars

cenere nera
tutte quelle stelle nascoste
nell’oscurità

black ash
all those hidden stars
in the darkness

pagine vuote
le ultime parole di Anna
portate via dal vento

empty pages
Anne’s last words
carried off by the wind

filo spinato
in primavera le rose
raggiungono ancora il cielo

barbed wire
in spring the roses
reach the sky again

petali caduti
il modo in cui lasciamo andare
la nostra vita

fallen petals
the way we left
our life

Eufemia Griffo – Failed Haiku Feb. 2019: three poems to Rachel Sutcliffe

To Rachel

small poems
the way our lives
intertwined

twinkle of stars
your new path 
brighter

sunrise…
this empty day
without your words

piccole poesie
il modo in cui le nostre vite
si sono intrecciate

scintillio di stelle
il tuo nuovo sentiero
più luminoso

alba…
questo giorno vuoto
senza le tue parole

Otata, January 2019

Otata, January 1, 2019: ten poems of mine featured in this beautiful journal edited by John Martone. My deep gratitude to the editor and congrats to all!!!

snow

fine dell’anno
i vecchi ricordi coperti
di neve

year’s end
old memories covered
in snow

solitudine invernale
un cigno guarda
il primo fiocco di neve

winter solitude
a swan watches
first snowflake

Natale passato
il tempo si è fermato
in un globo di neve

Christmas past
time stopped
in a snow globe

oche migratrici
anche gli alberi
stanno cambiando i colori

migrating geese
the trees too
are changing colours

campana tibetana
il suono della neve
prima di cadere

singing bowl
the sound of snow
before falling

fiori di gelso
un manto di neve
culla il loro sonno

mulberry flowers
sleep cradled in 
a blanket of snow

cielo invernale
anche le stelle diventano
più bianche

winter sky
even the stars turn
whiter

ricordi fugaci
un altro giro
di un vecchio nastro

fugitive memories
another turn 
of an old ribbon

antiche zampogne
un vecchio attende ancora
il ritorno dei Re Magi

ancient bagpipes
the old man still awaits 
three Wise Men

Via della Seta
senza le stelle
vaghiamo invano

Silk Road
without the stars
we wander in vain

Failed Haiku, Jan. 2019

cover

Thank you so much to editor Michael Rehling for this great work and congratulations to all poets featured. 
These are my five poems:

year’s end
a migrant seeks a refuge
among his memories

winter is coming
the farewell march
of ants

disappearing
into a bowl of sake
my face as a child

winter temple
between Buddha’s hands
a snowflake

dissolved mist
the thin shape
of my wishes

Bio Sketch

Eufemia Griffo is from Settimo Milanese (Milano) Italy. She is a writer and poet who has published books of poetry and fiction, including Dracula’s inheritance (The Legacy of Dracula), which she co-authored with Davide Benincasa, and The river is still flowing (a collection of tales). She has won many awards for her writing and has published haiku in the best international magazines. Her blog is Eufemia Griffo

The opening line sets the scene and seasonal context while the unexpected yet thematically and emotionally significant last line elevates the haiku to a philosophical/contemplative level, sparking the reader’s reflection on (the circle of)life and death.
