|ROMANIAN MINIANTHOLOGY OF ASTRO-HAI-KU|
This is the English version of an antholgy published by The Romanian Society for Meteors and Astronomy as part of their Festival of Cosmopoetry. Around half the contributors are school-children.
There is much use of metaphor and whilst the works would be welcome in the context of scifaiku not many really pass muster as haiku.
My two favourites are this by Marian Truta
Seagulls — the crying of the ocean which cannot drown the earthand
Vastness — the pencil which I use for writing about the Universeby school pupil Diana Maria Ogescu. There's also a nice concrete haiku by Don Mitrut
Model rocket — f i r s t t i m i d m e t e o r i g n o r i n g the gravitation laws.Especially interesting for me is part of the introduction by Marian Truta:
hai-ku — the wish to overrun the flashing ineffable of a moment for eternity.
