After having taught math and science at middle school, now I am retired. From a few years I am impassioned haiku, I started reading classical authors, attracted by the brevity and rhythm of the verse; an image that runs out in seventeen syllables was a perfect thing for me. Lately I have started to appreciate haiku written in English, synthetic and modern. I am spending a part of the year in the Veneto countryside, the rest of the time I live near the sea, in Liguria; in haiku I find the possibility to translate into a few syllables the amazement of nature and the everyday reality that I find in my garden and my sea.
I had publications in The Mainichi, Otata, Failed Haiku, Bonsai, Brass Bell, Cattails, Chrysanthemum, Haiku Masters, Haikuniverse, The Heron's Nest, Incense Dreams, The Mamba, Memorie di una geisha, The Asahi Shimbun, tinywords, Wales Haiku Journal, World Haiku Review, The Haiku Foundation features .

Selected Work
too small
to see the moon―
two steps back
family quarrel
concentric rings
of the onion
color of the wind
near the rails
a few drops
of probability
far thunder―
how long without hearing
a reproach
Fibonacci spiral
the cosmic form
of the shell
