Haiku: Dreamcatcher

our old telepathy
works again

Dreamcatcher was first published in Frameless Sky Issue 12, a poetry video journal featuring artwork by Hemapriya Chellappan, music by Corine Timmer and poems from more than fifty poets from all corners of the world. A very big thank you to Christine L Villa and Shloka Shankar for featuring my poem and putting this beautiful edition together.

Dreamcatcher was subsequently featured in Akita International Haiku Network’s World Haiku Series 2020 with a beautiful Japanese translation by Mr Hidenori Hiruta. A warm-hearted thank you to Mr Hiruta for including this poem in respect of the 326th anniversary of Matsuo Bashõ’s passing and all the souls of those who lost their lives to COVID-19.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Cathy and it is a cormorant 🙂🧡 We’re lucky to see them on the outcrops at low tide and sometimes they fly a bit inland along the river. A lovely rest of the day to you too from all of us here! 🤗💖🐕 xxx
