Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today a new Special haiku written by myself. The haiku which I love to share with you all was my first in English ever. I think I wrote it somewhere in 2006. This haiku was a great success and was translated in a lot of languages e.g. Hindi, German, French and Italian. It made me an international known haiku poet. Since that first English haiku I write all my haiku in English. Of course sometimes I write in Dutch, but the Dutch haiku you can count nowadays on two hands. It's even a struggle to write my haiku in Dutch and sometimes it takes a lot of time before I publish that Dutch haiku, but ... they are also wonderful (how immodest).

Well ... that was the third Special for this month. I hope you liked it and I hope to see wonderful haiku inspired on this one.
