And here also the new issue of Otata!
Many thanks to the editor John Martone for choosing three of my haiku. it’s an honor for me.
Post them below:

snowy beach –
the thoughts wreck
in this white

snowy night –
a silent song
inside and out

crescent moon –
between snow butterflies
bamboo dances

Elisa Allo

Congratulations to my friends Angiola Inglese, Marina Bellini, Maria Laura Mamiya Valente and Christina Sng.

— and from otata’s bookshelf —

David Miller, From Late to Early


Otata will come again
one day
late fall in the mountains

— Santoka as translated by Burton Watson

Otata mo aru hi wa kite kureru yama no aki fukaku

As Watson notes, “Otata was a woman who went around selling fish in the area of Santoka’s cottage in Matsuyama.”
