frozen lake —
shadows of flocks in flight
winter wood —
the snort of a wild boar
sweeps away the snowflakes
a daisy in the meadow
bends at sunset —
downpours of rain
purify seas, skies and lands —
a new dawn
It’s autumn —
the sweetness of the air still
caresses the flowers
the meow of the cat…
foggy windows full of footprints
advent calendar —
roasted chestnuts and next to the fire
a rolled cat
hidden in the clouds…
or maybe it’s smog
lights above the city —
the last bomb wakes up
the sleep of a child
New Year’s Day
everywhere fog and silence —
and dreams, again
Alessandra Delle Fratte is an Italian psychotherapist (Rome), with a great passion for the creative writing: her short stories are published in several anthologies (MdS, Giulio Perrone Editore).
She approaches writing haiku in 2015.
In this kind of poems she finds the right brevity and rhythm that allow – to each verse – to express the most archetypical or intimate thoughts.
Present in THF’s Haiku Registry, her haiku were published on several international digital journals and blogs.
Awards: Honoured Mention at the G. Pece Italian Prize (2019).
Work Anthologized: A.A.V.V. Haiku Column Anthology Vol. 4 (2018), Vol. 5 (2019), Vol.6 (2020).
Three jasmines scent my tea (2019) is her first Haiku Collection, with poems written both in Italian and in English.*
