Haiku--By Claudia Messelodi--Italy

Late summer days -
your dark eyes glow mysterious,
twilight hazy hues.
_______________

The memory of
your linen dress floats away -
scarlet moon tides.
_______________

Scent of the orchid -
the thrill of her presence
on the wings of my thoughts.
_______________

December sunset -
iridescent clouds spiral
through dazzling vistas.
_______________

Claudia Messelodi lives in Italy where she works as a foreign language teacher at a secondary school. She is the author of five poetry collections. She loves writing haiku and other short forms of poetry both in English and Italian and sometimes in other foreign languages too. Her poetry has appeared in many anthologies and publications over the last few years and was also honored with several awards.
