Haiku: Stars on the River

a Victorian cottage on the edge of a wood
rowan berries on the bank high above a fast-flowing river

lighting the stove
a salmon follows the stars
on the river

We are deeply honoured and delighted that the above haiku has also been included in the World Haiku Series 2021, with a beautiful Japanese translation by Mr Hidenori Hiruta.

Wishing you all a blessed Sunday and a peaceful week ahead,

  1. The first photo is of a really lovely spot: the shingled roof, and the path through the woods. The next two shots are wonderful studies in how attention can lift the common everyday sights into something beautiful. I also think your haiku(s) are other examples of that.
