We are delighted that the haiku featured in My Friend, My Rock has been included in the Haiku Foundation’s EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaboration 2019. Three Haiku from our sister blog TranatureCeltic Mist, A Drop of Bliss and Garden Buddha, were also included. A very big thank you to Jim Kacian and all at the Haiku Foundation for putting this project together.
