Book of the Week: Dewdrops On the Weeds



Our Book of the Week is Dewdrops On the Weeds from the works of Bulgarian haiku poet Ludmila Balabanova. Like all good haiku poets, Ludmila is a master of expressing brief, emotional moments that open a light into the darkness.


the tree by the window
again in bloom


swift kiss
at the bus stop –
day moon


sleepless night
my breath moves
his dreams
