Tanka: Autumn Turns

two whippets running on the beach in the sunshine


autumn turns –
our old dogs run as fast
as the sun
bursts through forbidding clouds
changing the day forever

I am delighted to contribute one haiku (in Dutch) to the Haiku-kantelkalender 2022. The calendar features fifty-two haiku by poets from Belgium and The Netherlands and is available from Haiku-centrum Vlaanderen. A very big thank you to Régine Dendooven and the team for including my poem and putting this beautiful calendar together.
