haiku--By Claudia Messelodi--Italy

muffled voices -
on the roads of March
snow again
________

the night shades -
in the field of almonds trees
the first blossom
________

night falls -
on the wings of the wind
ancient melodies
________

bare cliff -
motionless hover
white seagulls

snowflakes -
in the evening quietness
veiled eyes
________
