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.
