Frameless Sky: Issue 5

Have you caught up with Issue 5 of Frameless Sky, Christine Villa’s twice yearly haiku and tanka DVD? Each issue showcases poets, artists and musicians in a 20 minute video. You’ve read Japanese short-form poetry in print, you’ve read poems in online journals, with Frameless Sky you can watch poetry in an engaging and entertaining video.

Issue 5 features poets from well over a dozen countries, including three of my haiku. Here are a few poems from the current issue:


summer breeze

up on the swing

I escape my shadow

Debbi Antebi


my robe


to the floor

I let winter

touch me

ai li


a lilac swan

on a tangerine lake –

her eye for colour

Gregory Piko


A sneak preview is available at Frameless Sky on YouTube while the full video can be purchased from Christine at the Frameless Sky website. Enjoy!
