tight strands unravelled

tension released – frayed, unwound;

hemp in a cold wind

basic particles

divide the collapsible

their artistry thinks

My debut at poetry with the volume “The Epitaph for the Tuberosa” under my maiden name Lubińska, “Arkona” Bydgoszcz, 1994, and the distinguished erotic “The Two-headed Dragon” in the 23rd M. Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska Contest of Poetry in 2016 gave me a free way to write love poems like these including erotics.

This is Olga’s first appearance at Pure Haiku.

compassion absent

during both good times and bad

friendship collapses

With haiku and tanka offering an opportunity for subtlety in such few words, I find myself focusing more on Japanese poetry, lately.

unlocking the joins

textured portraiture fractures;

random images

words abandon me

expressive thought fails me

sterile silence rules

hopes for the future

written with care – now shattered

in just one review

behind the counter

inside the garlic’s poked skin

a puff of powder

This is Wendy’s first appearance on Pure Haiku!
