Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

My excuses for being a bit late, I am on the nighshift, so I hadn't time earlier to publish our new episode(s).
Yesterday I tried to inspire you through tanka by Jane Reichhold and today I love to inspire you with a few beautiful haiku written by her. As you all know, Jane would have become 80 if she was still alive, so therefore I have organized this special week to honor her.

deep in winter
the babbling brook
white as stone
bubbles in ice
bubbles in ice
holding till spring
the voice of the brook
the mountain brook
still with listening
winter winds

Three nice haiku. I love that 2nd haiku the most. The beauty of still water holding the babbling of the brook ... a little gem ... no a masterpiece I would say.
