World Haiku Series 2022 (3) Haiku by Alenka Zorman (Slovenia)


Entry to the city park.

The scents settle in me

before the flowers.


The shape of an anvil.

Is that cloud bringing

hail into May night?


Crane builds a house.

A pair of swans nests

in the nearby reeds.


Sleeping lamp.

On the nearby vinegar tree

lights for both.


Expensive sea suite.

All inclusive for a spider

on the balcony.


Heat wave.

I love the sun most

when it says goodbye.


Storm forecast.

The screaming of crows

announces it earlier.


Along the way

to the biotechnical faculty

ripe rosehips.


Remembrance day of the dead.

Winds have not yet blown away

all the dandelion clocks.


Bird migration time.

Only metal cranes jut

into the sky.
