all the fireworks
in your eyes
© Jane Reichhold(1937-2016)
I remember Lynx online magazine with all its interesting segments: haiku, tanka collabrations and much more. and its handbook type AHA poetry. Here i would read and checklist every so often to keep my
haiku craft fresh. It was here at [XXIII:2June 2008] that my book
'Moments' was reviewed by Jane.
Alas my haiku spirit meanders here and there. Especially since getting into Facebook, with a myriad of groups keep popping up. So i strayed from Lynx for quite a long time. Then came a time to catch up.
This happened at Carpe Diem when Kristjaan our delightful host introduced the Ask Jane Section. And so another chapter of interaction started up. However this phase was short lived. It was at Facebook while prompting for NaHaiWriMo this August that i read Micheal Dylan Welch's report of Jane's passing. Sad news for the community-NaHaiWriMo and the rest of the haiku world. Rest in Peace dear Jane.

nonchalant the drift of clouds
