As someone who has written a lot about my mother in haiku, and in haibun, and never realised that I would, these poems are important. They do an awful lot of good whether someone is normally a poetry lover or not. They just connect.
Many thanks Roberta, and to Tinywords, for publishing this one.
warmest regards, hope to see you soon somewhere near in the South West of England! :-)
Thanks for these comments and thanks tinywords for publishing this one. This haiku was translated into Hebrew by poet Alex Ben-Ari and included in a ‘Zoom’ reading I did yesterday 23 April 2020 for Poetry Place International Festival.
