World Haiku Series 2019 (148)
Haiku by Pere Risteski
it rains cats and dogs
a light wind
the sun edged a cloud
a rain before dawn splatters periodically
a coaly dark cloud
thunderbolt goes zigzag
rain scattered within wet twilight
a circle next to circle the sun
swallows fly in flat curves
dry wind goes wild
a handful sky
dark clouds are foaming
— Translated by Hidenori Hiruta
