I am deeply honoured to share Haiku and Photo Haiku as part of the World Haiku Series 2020, in respect of the 326th anniversary of Matsuo Bashõ’s passing and in respect of all the souls who lost their lives to COVID-19. A warm-hearted thank you to Mr Hidenori Hiruta for his beautiful Japanese translations and for creating this wonderful series.

The haiku and photo haiku I offered were all created during the pandemic. Please visit Akita International Haiku Network for the full post.

We are now taking a short blogging break and will be back on Sunday 3 October 2021.

Wishing you all a sparkling Wednesday and a great week ahead,
