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 –

a silent song
inside and out
crescent moon –
between snow butterflies
Congratulations to my friends Angiola Inglese, Marina Bellini, Maria Laura Mamiya Valente and Christina Sng.

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