To one another...

Third Place
Haiku Contest Wild Plum 2016

black clouds rumble
our cotton candies stick
to one another

Lavana Kray

Both parts of the poem are linked to a strong expressive symbolism. Cut out from two antithetical situations, as their most relevant elements. Polarizing them in the most contrasting colors - black and white. Also, emphasizing the sharing of joy: to one another.

The threat and the secure oasis of happiness. The childlike joy that does not notice danger. Or, through the intensity of candor, it exorcises it. A haiku moment that can be placed on a medallion. Blessed is he wearing around his neck and soul such a talisman. He will always find serenity in the middle of the most hostile cloudy sky.

(Corneliu Traian Atanasiu)
