Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I am still in shock ... the haiku world has lost its Queen. Jane Reichhold passed away on July 28th 2016. She will be missed dearly.
I love to create a tribute to her. This week I will create an extra Theme Week to honor her, but that's not all I want to do. Jane was part of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and was enthusiastic about our website. She was not only a dear friend, but also one of our co-hosts, especially through our special feature "Ask Jane". She was always so kind to answer all your and my questions about haiku, tanka, haibun and renga.
Jane will be forever in my heart and I just have to tribute her.
This week I will create several pots about her and her work as a haiku poetess whom was renown and loved all over the globe.
My thoughts and prayers are with Werner, her husband, and her family and all those who have warm memories of her (including myself).
Dear Jane ... Rest In Peace ... this Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Theme Week is for you.
My first contact with Jane was back in 2013. I created a month of CDHK in which she was the featured haiku poetess in our CD Specials and before that I had a small interview with her. I love to reproduce that interview here again:
[ JR means Jane Reichhold; KP means me, your host ]
