Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

Moussia has translated "winter tree" (Jan. 29) into Italian:

l'albero nudo
permette di entrare
al buio

Grazie, Moussia.

Thanks, Adelaide. As James Thurber once said, "I lose a lot in the original."

Moussia is a fine poet in her own right, working in English as well as her native Italian.

Since I can't carry a tune, Doug, the most beautiful sounds to come out of my mouth are my halting attempts at Italian.
