Yesterday I received very sad news through the mail. Jane Reichhold, Queen of Haiku, a very dear and close friend and haiku poetess passed away. She was 79. Jane ... Rest In Peace.
As you know I am hosting a daily haiku meme, Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, and back in 2013 I created a few special episodes with haiku by Jane Reichhold. My submission for the Summer Retreat is a haiku I created in response on one of those specials. A small tribute to Jane Reichhold.
