This very touching story about Helen Russell’s last moment and final haiku was sent by Tanya MacDonald to the haiku community:****Dear Haiku Northwest folks,
I have some sad news. As some of you already know, one of our members, Helen Russell, passed away earlier this month. She was 101 years old and much loved by all who knew her.Connie Hutchison spoke with one of Helen’s sons: “
“Write one haiku a day for the month of February! Why February? Because it’s the shortest month—for the world’s shortest form of poetry. Join poets around the world who pledge to write at least one haiku a day for National Haiku Writing Month during the shortest month of the year.” (Source: NaHaiWriMo‘s website)
This fabulour event was created by Michael Dylan Welch. Participate by sharing your haiku on the Facebook Groups NaHaiWriMo (for English speakers) or NaHaiWriMo en français (for French speakers), or simply post your daily haiku on your blog or write them in notebooks for your own pleasure.
