Distinguished Poet

The Italian Haiku Society has announced the winners of the 2015 International Matsuo Basho Award. I was awarded a “Distinguished Poet” for the following haiku, which will be included in the anthology celebrating winning haiku.

alone
this starless night
tasting black

in twilight
cherry petals fall
without a sound

snow on snow...
her words fall onto
my silence
