In memory of Rachel Sutcliffe 1977-2019

#Haiku Happenings #9: Janice’s latest #haibun for my current #haikai challenge!



Last Thursday I was saddened to learn that Rachel Sutcliffe has died. She was/is an accomplished and recognized haiku poet who also shared her work on WordPress at Projectwords. Her Haiku Foundation profile may be found here.

Rachel’s poetry is on my favourites list. Though I wish she had been able to live and write much longer…I am grateful for what she has offered and the opportunity to know of her presence in this world.
