Billie Bokun in Colorado Springs, 2009 (Photo by: Miodrag Budiša)

Biljana Billie Bokun aka Lora Dober is a poet and photographer from Denver, Colorado. She started publishing haiku and tanka in Karolina Rijecka (Croatia). Some of her haiku include:

Snowflake falls
on my palm and melts
like a thought

I walk alone
this restless morning: patches
of snow in the grass

Lonely seagull
flies above the world
towards the sunlight

On the blue water
seagulls land and become
white flowers
