We’re delighted that this haiku is featured in Haiku Dialogue: Haiku Prism – White, Troutswirl, The Haiku Foundation Blog, 20 May 2020. A very big thank you to guest editor Tia Haynes and post manager Lori Zajkowski for putting this edition together.

The return of the arctic winds inspired a number of poems, including Arctic Breeze on our sister blog Whippet Wisdom.

Wishing you all a peaceful Wednesday and may you stay safe and well,

with love from Xenia xxx

  1. Lovely capture of one of my favorite flowers. I also love their scent. I particularly liked the “shelter in place” as the blossoms look like they are sheltering in the protection of the broad leaves.
