Vinca Haiku by Virginie Colline

Vinca Haiku

 
she grazes her scar
old blood the color of rust
on her maiden lace
 
charcoal and red smudge
nothing can make up the pain
the dark trudge quickens
 
tiny wallflower
you cannot hold a candle
you, periwinkle

The Spanish Girl Haiku

 
she follows the clouds
the breath of the summer wind
gently down her throat
 
explosion of light
the world was but a shadow
the minute before
 
vociferous sky
she walks through the bead curtain
the storm in her wake
 
suddenly the sun
the Sevillian girl rises
in a hiss of silk
