  1. Roman graves…
    the main street reconstruction
    takes ages

    (much of the old part of Ljubljana is built on Roman remains)

  2. city walls
    against the rain
    no defence

    frogs
    after the rain
    even on city streets

    town fair
    waltzers spinning
    and candy floss

  3. City of seven hills
    Clatter of chestnut
    ringing on the cobbles

    Stanislava P. Gancheva, Bulgaria

    Sunset flares up
    in Ethnographical museum
    Weep of violins

    In autumn morning
    sleep with a singing fountain
    antique lanterns

    1. shrieking sirens
      how calmly pigeons feed
      at the fountain

      Sonam Chhoki, Bhutan

      filled with the glow
      of changing traffic lights
      an empty shop window
