The clouds themselves, arranged by the wind
Write poems exquisite in the sky
In an alphabet to man unknown
Read by angels fluent that fly
Fanning the winds that write the words
That tell tales unknown to man
And those passed that others call dead…
Able to read these poems, they can.
~ For Svetlana!
(Svetalna Marisova, haikuist)
Svetlana Marisova was a Russian haikuist who wrote in the purest school of haiku. She passed away some ago at a young age, before she became widely known outside of the writing community. Her legacy is her words.
