In November, at the YT Haiku Retreat at Asilomar,
Emiko Miyashita brought copies from Japan of the recent worldwide
contest for children's haiku with art, which is sponsored every
two years by Japan Airlines. Here she is telling us about it.
It is quite a big deal, each poem is printed with the art
in the original language and in Japanese and English translations.
When I showed my copy to my 12-year old granddaughter
at Thanksgiving time, she asked me if she could have it!
And I gave it to her!
So tonight I don't have a haiku for the blog.
I hope to find one tomorrow!
