This is what Freya Pickard ( wrote in her Wednesday Words on 25th April. I thank her a lot, really, for all her kind, interesting comments and remarks on my work!

Today's Wednesday Words is a stream of small stones by Claudia Messelodi.

If you follow PureHaiku you will already have come across Claudia as she kindly allowed me to publish some of her haiku earlier this year. Her haiku also appear regularly at a handful of stones and recently she has had a collection of her poetry published in Italy as well as winning an award.

If you haven't yet visited her blog, I would encourage you to. a stream of small stones is utterly delightful. Each haiku is perfectly composed and acts as a small stone, allowing the reader to pause, think and meditate. Claudia's observations are a delight to read and I love mulling over her phrases, lingering on the words she's chosen.

Pop over and see for yourself!

One of my favourite haiku by Claudia is: -

Swirls of autumn leaves
the wind urge stirs up the hill;
scrawls on a blank page.


  1. It's a pleasure claudia to let people know about you and your work - I love it! I just wanted to let you know that I've Tagged you and your book on my blog today at
