We are delighted that the above haiku has been included in the Haiku Foundation’s EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaboration 2019. Our haiku Celtic Mist and A Drop of Bliss are also included. A very big thank you to Jim Kacian and The Haiku Foundation for featuring my poems and putting this beautiful edition together.

We are deeply honoured and delighted that the above haiku has subsequently been featured as part of the World Haiku Series 2019 organised by the Akita International Haiku Network, together with a Japanese translation by Hidenori Hiruta.
