Girasole Silloge

6 haiku

il sole a picco —
polveroso silenzio
sui girasoli

blazing sun — / dusty silence / on sunflowers

Anna Maria Domburg

chini col peso
di troppi gonfi semi —
i girasoli

bent by the weight / of too swollen seeds — / sunflowers

Maurizio Petruccioli

fruscio di steli —
girasoli nel campo
alti alla luce

stems swish — / sunflowers in the field / hight in the light

Oscar Luparia

luna d’agosto —
le prime foglie secche
del girasole

august moon — / first dried leaves / of the sunflowers

Angiola Inglese

lunga la notte —
sui girasoli negri
lucciole sparse

long is the night — / on burnt sunflowers / shed fireflies

Caterina Sale

pioggia all’aurora :
un girasole dorme
e sogna il sole

rain at sunrise : a sunflower sleeps / and dreams the sun

Lucia Fontana
