Haiku: Golden Glen

breath of the glen
crowns of pine and leafless trees
stretch towards the light

We are deeply honoured and delighted to have a new haiku (in Dutch) included in the Haiku-kantelkalender 2021. The calendar features fifty-two haiku by poets from Belgium and The Netherlands and is available from Haiku-centrum Vlaanderen (9 Euro per calendar plus postage). A very big thank you to Ferre Denis and the team for including my poem and putting this beautiful calendar together.
