How do you know Cara? Through the FB community NaHaiWriMo (National Haiku Writing Month). I loved her haiku there and looked out for it every day. Then we became Facebook friends…

How long have you been writing poetry? In my head, all my life.  Consistently, on paper and laptop, only the last few years.

What kind of poetry do you write? micropoetry, haiku, senryu, tanka, longer free-form poetry, prose poetry, haibun…

Please share a poem: With pleasure!
spilling its seeds
a broken pomegranate
bleeds for luck

Black seeds
the sweetness of
ripe watermelon

mountains –
looking for my childhood
in buttercups

‘spilling its seeds’ was published in Unfold magazine, 2011. In Greece, as in other countries in the region , it is believed that smashing a pomegranate on the floor, esp. on the first of the year, brings good luck.

‘Black seeds’ was published in the Asahi Shimbun Haikuist Network, 2011

‘mountains-’ was posted on FB ‘NaHaiWriMo,’ FB ‘joys of japan,’ my blogs and twitter, 2012
