vita che esplode -
sotto il soffio del vento
sbocciano pietre

a burst of life -
beneath whiffs of wind
blossoming stones

Luna di Miele -
effluvi di fiori
tutta una notte

Fiore del Vento
negli occhi soltanto
petali e pianto

only petals and tears
in my eyes

Pic. Tito Fornasiero, Anemoni
m'ama non m'ama
scivolano via i sogni
uno per uno

loves me or loves me not
dreams slip away
one by one

ventuno marzo -
il profumo del vento
tra i gelsomini

first day of spring -
the scent of the breeze
among the jasmines

raggio di luce
nei non ti scordar di me
occhi blu

a ray of light
in the forget-me-not blooms
sky-blue eyes

un rayo de luz
en los no-me-olvides
ojos azules

sfiorami il cuore -
voli impercettibili
di libellule

lightly touch my heart -
the imperceptible flight
of a dragonfly

azalee in fiore
di malva il blu pervaso -
sapido cielo

savouring heaven -
mauve blankets pervade the blue
azalea blooms

all the modes you fire me up

fischio del vento
nella nebbia a vagare
coi miei fantasmi

wind whistle
through this dense bank of mist
I roam with my ghosts

sifflement du vent
par cet ├ępais brouillard j'erre
avec mes fant├┤mes

Some of my haiku have appeared at Whispers today! I feel deeply honoured. Many many thanks Karen, Inge and Jack!
Click on the link below and find out what appeared on the homepage of the high school where I teach last month! I feel so elated. I am particularly thankful to a colleague of mine, Stefano Lotti,  who got me to have it all published!

solo uno sguardo
a lenire il mio inverno -
viola del pensiero

only a glance
to ease my winter -
wild pansy

una mirada
para aliviar mi invierno -
un pensamiento
