Honoured and super happy, to have a third place (vanguard haiku section), an honorable mention (shintai haiku) and two haiku published in Neo classical haiku, in World Haiku Review, Winter edition 2022, edited by Susumu Takiguchi.

Third Place

beyond the darkness
the stars still shine


Honorable mention

old love letters
a drop of sealing wax
among his words


Neoclassical Haiku section

snow falls quietly
only faded memories
of the past year


wedding day
first snowflakes
on the bride’s veil

World Haiku Review edited by Susumu Takiguchi

I have two haiku with merit mention in Vanguard Haiku. The subject of this submission was “the death” , a difficult and poignant topic. A special thanks to Susumu Takiguchi, Editor-in-Chief and Rohini Gupta, Editor.

your absence
the loneliness
in every room

funeral wake
an old family rosary
on an empty chair

la tua assenza
la solitudine
in ogni stanza

veglia funebre
un vecchio rosario di famiglia
su una sedia vuota

closed suitcase​
the weight of her memories​

a snow angel appears​
in my hands​

the muffled whinny of a foal​
through the fog​
