Haiku by Dragan J. Ristić


these May rain pours –

hymns to the earth

rainy morning –

basket full with juicy

strawberries with earth

grave of parents –

eternal peace in the earth

with the neighbors

time of satellites –

I’m still dreaming of

better life on the earth

only the dust

I brought on my hands

from the antique shop

the last sun ray

grazed the cliff –

the shriek of a falcon


on the first morning snow –

dogs playing

from the top of the rock

my thoughts are with a falcon –

the flight over the secretes

the closest to God –

sticking out from the hilltop

the village graveyard

the first love break –

on the shoes today

the earth again



Dragan J.
