the child I once was
in the garden

This haiku was first published in Haiku Dialogue: Haiku Prism – Blue, Troutswirl, The Haiku Foundation Blog, 15 April 2020. A very big thank you to guest editor Tia Haynes and post manager Lori Zajkowski for featuring my poem and putting this beautiful edition together.
A Dutch interpretation of this haiku has subsequently been included in the anthology Aan het Woord 2020 – de geur van geluid, edited by Ferre Denis, Maria de Bie and Nol Hovens, published by Haiku Kring Nederland and Haiku-centrum Vlaanderen. Heartfelt thanks to the editors for including my poem and creating this wonderful anthology.
Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday,
with love from Xenia xxx
