Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
While The Netherlands are having again a very hot summer day I have to write a new episode for our haiku-community. And this time I love to share a haiku by Chiyo-Ni and I hope it will also be a tribute to our fellow Dutch people who have died in the recently plane-attack in the Ukraine air. An airplane of Malaysian Airlines was shot down by some aggresively people who are fighting about a piece of land.
In this plane there were 192 Dutch people, all have died .... it was a very sad day in our history ... our whole country is in mourn ... and are all hoping that there will be clearification for what has happened there. My thoughts are with all those who stay behind with empty hands and the loss of their loved ones. Rest In Peace.
I hope this haiku I have chosen for today's episode will give words to my feelings and that it will give some comfort to those who are left behind ....
and fireflies that vanish
that is all there is...
