GREIERI SI CRIZANTEME|
The Romanian Haiku Society is thriving, having been set up in 1991. The publisher selected 316 haiku from 156 poets around the world who have been writing haiku for many years. The poems were translated into English and French, the translators being Paula Romanescu, Vasile Moldovan and Nicolitov Alentin.
The subject matter is pleasingly varied, and ranges from haiku about the sea:
winter night — the troubled sea eating up white Petre Andrei Fluerasu small paper boat furrows the puddle wishfull of oceans Nella Balina-Danchevato those about various flowers:
valentine's Day — at the bank entrance a crushed rose Alecsandar Sevaand contemplations about life and haiku:
I'm translating haiku . . . among old words new meanings Bogdanka Stojanovski winter seclusion a writer lost in the deep white of a blank Andre SuridgeThis is an interesting and well-presented anthology which should be useful for those learning the languages too.
