soft rains on Lesbos...
soot glistens on the walls
of the makeshift tent
sound of the wind
from the mountain

*Craft essay by Stella Pierides: Felting Haiga [or, Hairballs to Haiga: The Evolution of a New Hybrid, “Haikufelting”]
is a British poet of Greek descent who divides her time between Neusaess, Germany, and London, England. Currently, she serves on the Board of Directors of The Haiku Foundation (THF) and works on its Haikupedia (encyclopedia of haiku) project.
Interweaving the past with the present, Stella’s work is located at the meeting points of cultural, social, and psychological worlds, which spark the day-to-day moments of our lives. Her work has been published in numerous print and online journals and anthologies. She has co-edited and contributed to Even Paranoids Have Enemies: New Perspectives on Paranoia and Persecution (Routledge, 1998) and Beyond Madness (JKP, 2002).
Recent books include Feeding the Doves, short stories and haibun (Fruit Dove Press, 2013); and two books, In the Garden of Absence, micro-poetry and haiku (Fruit Dove Press, 2012), and Of This World, haibun (Red Moon Press, 2017), which received Haiku Society of America Merit Awards for books published in 2012 and 2017, respectively.
