Haibun: Raspberry Blues

#Haiku Happenings #3: Xenia Tran’s latest #haibun includes a haiku that appears in THF’s Haiku Dialogue!

Whippet Wisdom - a Highland Journey

It’s quiet in the car park and the temperature is perfect for climbing up the crag. Winding our way through the trees, we’re welcomed by subtle scents of Summer greens and flowering heather. Squirrels are feeding on pine, hawks are gliding overhead. It won’t be long until we bring a basket and pick our fruit again.

all grandma’s singing

We’re delighted that the above haiku is featured in the Haiku Foundation’s ‘Haiku Dialogues’ this week. A very big thank you to Kathy Munro for putting this lovely collection together.

Wishing you all a wonderful Thursday,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
