A passing shower brings welcome freshness, more greenness to the grass. Water cascades from the top into a thousand tiny pools. We hear the ‘plop’ of frogs leaping. Careful where we place our feet, we continue the climb. Eivor and Pearl grind to a halt, star-struck. We know what they’ve seen. They ask whether we can see it too. We blink and tell them we believe them.

We left you with smiles before our editing break and are happy to be back here with more smiles after a fruitful week of work.
We are also deeply honoured, humbled and delighted to learn that our photograph and haiku Winter Mist featured on NHK World Japan’s Haiku Masters in Tokyo – Part 1, broadcast on 4th March 2019 from Tokyo.
We are very grateful to presenters Kit Pancoast Nagamura, Kazuko Nishimura and Dan Mitsu for their thoughtful and entertaining interpretation of this photo haiku.
The entire episode, featuring a number of photo haiku and haiku by other international haiku poets, is available to view on the NHK World Japan website and lasts approximately 28 minutes.
Wishing you all a magical Wednesday,
with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
