World Haiku Series 2019 (115)
Haiku by Marina Bellini
I place you
on the last flower
All Souls’ Day
a girl leaves a flower
on a forgotten grave
the winter eggs
white and small
a run on the lawn
my Jack Russell chases
a crow’s shadow
the branch and the one cut-down
have blossomed all at once
a green tomato
in the puddle
a migrant rides his bike
back from the field
a white and ginger cat
stares into the void
everything slows down
only sun roots
