Haiku by Anya of the USA. Anya-san was among the first haiku people I got to know when I started writing haiku of my own. I wrote my first haiku in English, and started to submit my haiku to online haiku magazines like Heron's Nest, Asahi Haikuist Network, Mainichi Daily, and so forth. I learned from foreigners how to write haiku, my native tradition. Interesting.
