I am honoured to share the following haiku and tanka, recently published in “They Gave Us Life” anthology, edited by Robert Epstein.

cherry blossom
my mother plants
my first smile

floral appliques--
my mother brings for me
the twinkling stars

mother’s touch
keeps the winter away
the tired dog
encircles the puppies
under its swollen breasts

****    ****    ****
my gleaming mother
shares her  pleasure  
with twin buds
I sense ripples of sound
of the swimming clouds

****    ****    ****
with snowflakes
I merrily rush ahead
with teary eyes
my mother  consoles me
kissing my empty hands

****    ****    ****
