The following piece was included in Mainichi Daily News' Haiku in English: Best of 2010. See all the selections (especially, the haiku of good friends Ralf Broeker, Karol Rosiak, Rudi Pfaller, and Marek Kozubek) and comments made by Isamu Hashimoto, judge of Annual Selection 2010.

all souls' day
the missing jigsaw pieces
I count alone

(December, 2010)

Yes, dear Carlos. I will always remember your incredible haiku.

Best regards,

Thank you, Karol.

You are blessed to have your "old garden" to tell stories about your childhood:

old garden
from tree to tree
my childhood.


All the best,


Karol Rosiak said...

Thank you so much.

It makes realize that I need to work much harder on my poems.

Here we are again!

moon eclipse
this loss of face
so brief

Thank you, Sandy.

Don't be hard on yourself. I struggle through a number of my pieces myself.

You have a leg up on most of us -- the photos of your haiga are great. And your haiga are variously cheerful, thoughtful, and thought-provoking.

I wish I could visit more often.

Warm regards.

Thank you, Rudy, for letting me know about "moon eclipse" being published. It's been a while since I sent it.

Warm reagrds.
