Mariposa, Number 44, Spring/Summer 2021

leaves of grass
and hollow reeds sing
between our lips
we join the insects
orchestrating summer

the intricate lace
of decaying leaves
are we
any less beautiful now
that our youth is gone

This issue includes the results of the 2020 San Francisco International Competition for Haiku, Senryu and Tanka:

a raven
believed it could fly
through me
unaware that I am glass,
pretending to be sky

3rd Place Tanka
