Haiku: Smile in Motion

#Haiku Happenings #4: Xenia Tran’s latest haiku appears in THF’s Haiku Dialogue!

Whippet Wisdom - a Highland Journey

spilling stones
your smile leaps over
the old defences

Many of the Second World War defences along the Moray Coast are sinking deeper into the shifting sands. You can see some images taken earlier this year where they are still upright in Edge of New Tomorrows.

We’re delighted that this haiku is featured in Haiku Dialogue: Poet’s Choice, ambiguity, Troutswirl, The Haiku Foundation Blog, 4 September 2019. A very big thank you to Craig Kittner for putting this edition together.

Wishing you all a wonderful Thursday,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
