Leaves of Sun
Predrag Pesic


reviewed by Robert Spiess

Leaves of Sun by Predrag Pesic; from the author: Prote Mateje 86/1, 11300 Smeder Evo, Yugoslavia; 2001, 56 pp., paper, no price given.


Three haiku on each page are presented in Yugoslavian with English translations. A sampling of two haiku:

Old lilac takes over
white flowers of
blooming cherry tree.


Cherry tree in bloom—
in its branches’ shade
a butterfly on the stone.
