Russia Haiku

St. Basils

Following on from the first part of my essay about my trip to Russia, I wrote these haiku this morning, and I thought I’d share them with you.


Red Square

black-booted soldiers
stomping watchfulness over
one already dead

St. Basil’s Cathedral

rainbow-coloured twists
intricate architecture
st basil’s stands tall

Gorky Park

wind of change echoes
as we walk through Gorky Park
following moscva

Pioneer Camp

pioneer kids greet
perform show of song and dance
hearts and souls soar high

The Kremlin

behind kremlin wall
great tsar bell remains silent
cracked when fire broke out

I am a writer who is passionate about words. I find them magical and seductive. I write short stories, poetry, and non fiction. I'm currently working on my first novel.
