We’re delighted that this haiku is featured in Haiku Dialogue: Social Issues – Climate Change and intro to Turn of the Decade, Troutswirl, The Haiku Foundation Blog, 4 December 2019. A very big thank you to Lori Zajkowski for putting this edition together.

We hope our friends in Ireland and the UK stay safe while Storm Atiyah passes and our thoughts are with everyone affected by the floods in New Zealand and wildfires in Australia at this time.

With love from Xenia xxx
