World Haiku Series 2019 (209)
Haiku by Anna Maria Domburg-Sancristoforo
I try to remember
the smell of hay
a cloud’s shadow
comes and goes
Wales Haiku Journal, Spring 2020
without a sound
this rain coming
from long ago
Asahi Haikuist Network, November 29, 2019
leaving my heart
a long way behind
Cattails, October 2019
the weight of silence
on the sunflowers
Honourable mention in the 73rd Basho Contest
in the round bowl
Otata, March 2018
low tide –
not even a message
on my cellphone
Femkumag, April 2019
rice paddies –
a frog croaking
against the rain
A Sense of Place – The Haiku Foundation, September 2018
stepping stones –
my father teaches me
how to dance
Frameless Sky, December 2018
the blues come
with the piano man
The Mainichi, Nov. 21, 2016
