Vladislav Vassiliev


how many pixels
in the matrix?
  starry night…
a spider caught under
the colander
with a sigh, the lily
dries out
  lilac blossoms,
along with morning breeze---
a muezzin's call
both ends of the night
- moon
and satellite dish

Vladislav Vassiliev was born in Russia. For the last eight years he has been living with his family in London, UK, where he works as an investment banker. His poetry recently appeared in the bilingual haiku almanac Haikumena published in Moscow, Russia. Vladislav also enjoys translating some of the best Russian haiku into English.
