                        wanting you

                        flower nectar
                        dripping on the

                        what words would

i traveled a moonbeam tonight searching for you






page eighteen





                        at dawn
                        my aching limbs

                        somehow, somewhere
                        you invaded me






page nineteen





                        silent bedroom whispers
                        linger in my hair...
                        before you leave

                        to fill me

                        dipping into the well
                        of love, i disturb the
                        moon's reflection...
                        foolish woman, he will
                        never overlap you again






page twenty-two



                        paper screen
                        the shadows of my lover

as he slowly undresses
how erotic the spadix
                        of the red calla lily







page twenty-three



                        there was no moon tonight
so i painted one on the
                        bedroom window
                        while my thoughtless lover
                        slept until dawn

Pamela A. Babusci


Pamela A. Babusci is an internationally published haiku & tanka 
poet, winning numerous awards, including The Museum of Haiku 
Literature Award in 1995 & International Tanka Splendor Awards in 
1996-1999 & 2001.  Her poetry has appeared in many anthologies, 
including In The Ship's Wake (England), The Art of Haiku 2000 
(England), The Basho Festival Anthology (Japan), Red Moon 
Anthologies & The Internationalization of Japanese Poems (Japan).

She helped illustrate, Full Moon Tide: The Best of Tanka Splendor 
& her sumi-e paintings will appear in the four issues of the HSA 
Newsletter in 2001-2002.  For Haiku North America 2003, Pamela
was chosen to be the artist to design the logo.

Pamela writes at least one haiku or tanka every day before the 
morning star rises.  She can't imagine her life without the "art of 
poetry" in it.  Poetry is an integral part of her life, like her artwork 
& her spiritually.  She finds peace & serenity in writing poetry & 
many times her words bring emotional healing into her essence.  
She hopes, that in reading her poems, you will understand the 
different moods, emotions, the complexity of her personality,
and the ebb & flow of the tides of her life.
