World Haiku Series 2022 (11) Haiku by Barbara Anna Gaiardoni (Italy)

Haiku by Barbara Anna Gaiardoni

incinerated by

a thunderbolt from heaven

lion dance

pilgrim of peace

an old woman living inside

the train station


with a checkered past

black friday

a kid listening

to a skylark

road barred

from the old book

a flower petal is falling

wild ducks in flight

collecting tadpoles

is my new obsession

war among the poor

lemon bread

on the Christmas table

the absence is filled

giant manatees

sunning on a big rock

fake-tan cream

a tangle of twisted film

like a kind of cloud

watermelon party

a sort of delirium

in the middle of summer

sudden letter
