sea of daffodils
the green tick in your window
tells us you’re OK

Across the Highlands community groups are doing their best to look after the most vulnerable among us, as Covid-19 is spreading here too. In the village of Ballachulish every household received flags for display in their window or front door. A green tick means you’re healthy and able to go about your business, a red cross means you’re not so well and need help. Volunteers monitor the displays and arrange assistance where it is needed.
We’re delighted that this haiku is featured in Haiku Dialogue: The Haiku Mind – Signs of Spring, Troutswirl, The Haiku Foundation Blog, 25 March 2020. A very big thank you to guest editor Tia Haynes and post manager Lori Zajkowski for putting this edition together.
Wishing you a blessed Sunday and may you all stay safe and well,
with love from Xenia xxx
