always near
the spirits of loved ones
heaven’s river

We’re delighted that this haiku is featured in Haiku Dialogue: Poet’s Choice, cemetery, Troutswirl, The Haiku Foundation Blog, 25 September 2019. A very big thank you to Kathy Munro for putting this edition together.

We’re taking a short blogging break to make the most of the fine weather and will be back next Wednesday.

Wishing you all a wonderful week,

with love from Xenia xxx

the river speaks
in waterfalls, mountains
her journey in stone
