Haiku by Ali Znaidi


                 little waves
[s]lapping the side of the boat

shadows on the wall


a night party—

worms were feasting

on a rotten beetroot



     the mulberry leaves

silkworms were weaving

        dreams on looms


the noun dream

a few bare letters

succumbing to fresh water
