Light Photo Haiku from Indonesia into NHK World TV Programme (Video). Honoured Being Chosen among 3645 photo haiku submissions from 88 countries & territory

How I treasure the opportunity to receive  feedback about my work.

Honoured being chosen among 3645 photo haiku submissions from 88 countries & territory in HAIKU MASTERS, NHK World TV Programme and NHK world Video on Demand, Episode 7: ‘Rikugien Gardens Tokyo’.  Rikugien means ‘Garden of the 6 Principles of Poetry’ as its aesthetics are rooted in the world of Waka poetry.

A very warm and hearty thank you to Michio Nakahara-sensei (Haiku Master), Kit Pancoast Nagamura (Haiku Poet), and Lisa Vogt (Photographer) who reviewed our humble work.

Thank you for the support, guidance, and encouragement.
My bow,

Ken Sawitri

Spring Rain Haiku: Low Sky, Winter Haiku, RIGHT HAND POINTING, Annual Haiku Issue 2017

Proud being selected again in Right Hand Pointing Annual Haiku Issue 2017.  Dale Wisely, the Editor, writes: “This issue, like last year’s, is guest-edited by our long-time supporter and contributor Eric Burke. Let me tell you something about Eric. Eric has got some serious focus and discipline. Just short of 149 people submitted haiku to this issue. We allowed submitters to send in up to 10 poems and many did. I estimate that Eric read around 750 haiku, from which he selected the 42 poems which appear in this issue. I read a sampling of the poems Eric declined. It would have driven me slap crazy to have had to turn down that many poems, because so many were so good.”

Year’s End Haiku into Never Ending Story

Chen-ou said:

L1 establishes the theme while the symbolically rich image in Ls 2&3 could be read as an authorial timely comment on tough economic times.”
