Vasile Moldovan, RO and Ginka Billiarska,* BG






Imported Roses


Night is on the wane
the moon receiving lightness
from the dandelions

The wind puffs out the sky lights
and white puffs are falling dawn

Crows picking all wheat,
under the deep-knit furrows
only seeds of weeds.

Blazing dragonflies
the river gets the sunset
almost mother-of-pearl.

The first dream of the Year:
planting olive branches together.

The banquet started
but all the imported roses
have already withered


*Ginka Biliarska (1946 - 2007) passed away on July 30, 2007 after a long and serious illness.  Ginka was President of the Bulgarian Haiku Club.
