three pompeii haiku


flecks of limestone
dogs curl up
by the pizzeria


Mt. Vesuvius recedes –
in the blue mist


cameras jostle for position
Pompeii plaster cast

  1. Love these, Ash. Even though I don’t see Vesuvius this way, love the image.

    1. 🙂 Have you done any on Italy yet? Keen to read them if so? Or any more translations?

  2. that last one is a cracker!

    1. Thanks, Graham! Came to me during our visit, it was grotesque that kind of desperation they had, to capture it. I felt bad being a tourist myself.
