  1. Thank you Vita Brevis Magazine, for selecting my Haiku. A pleasant surprise for me. Writing Haiku’s is quite new for me, but I am definitely enjoying the format. I’m personally pleased about my Haiku. I’m just back from a tourist visit to China, and I wrote my Haiku about a lovely event that I was fortunate enough to experience

Any thoughts?
