    Dear Jane, I am enjoying this very much. And here’s one for you:

    We're not hiding anything at the Haiku Foundation Digital Library, where Jane's bountiful 'Dictionary of Haiku' is available to be read in full.

    the house full
    of the scent of pine

    __A dusting dilemma_?

    poinsettia
    on this dusty end-table

    Oooops, missed some den-dust.

    Oh, Jane, this made me laugh out loud – probably because I recognise myself in it!

    Best wishes to you and Werner for 2016. :)
