Japanese stamp

drawing flowers
their scent is lost in the coal
drawing flowers with black pen
no color perturbs my eye
cold shapes on white sheets
as  life hurries
to eat the asphalt beneath my feet
drawing flowers
emptying the brain
long breaths in rhythmic pace
as life hurries
to consume my nerves
drawing flowers on and on
I am prepared to collide in the storm

    The calmness and serenity captured in Iulia’s exquisite poem bears a striking similarity to that intangible quality the reader might associate with Haiku. ” Japanese stamp “, in this reviewer’s estimation, is Iulia’s best work to date.
