lit up by dew
the spider’s silk breathes
pearls and rainbows

We are delighted that two haiku posted on this blog, Floating Swan and Sweet Starling, appear in EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaboration 2018 – Year of the Bird.

This publication is now available as a free download from the Haiku Foundation and we want to express a big thank you to the editors for putting this beautiful collection together.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,
with love, Xenia xxx
