DEWDROPS ON THE WEEDS by Ludmila Balabanova

Ludmila Balabanova is a computer engineer and has a Ph.D. in literature. Her previous books include seven collections of poetry (two of them haiku books) and a book of criticism on haiku (Haiku: A Dragonfly Under the Hat. The Power of the Unsaid, 2014). She is the editor of the anthology Mirrors (101 Bulgarian haiku selected and edited by Ludmila Balabanova in Bulgarian, English and French, 2005). Her works have been published in numerous magazines and included in prestigious anthologies in Belgium, France, Germany, Holland, Japan, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Sweden and USA. Her most important awards are: Basho’s 360th Anniversary Haiku Award, Japan, 2004; First Award for English Language Haiku at the International Haiku Festival, Constanta, Romania, 2013. In the composition of her haiku, Balabanova “relies more on heart than on intellect in her poetic art of one-breath revelation,” writes David G. Lanoue in his foreword.
