Haiga 328

Haiku by Drago Štambuk of Croatia. He was educated as a medical doctor.After Croatia declared its independence in 1991, he turns to ambassadorship. In a sensitive period of 1991-1994 he served as the Croatian ambassador to UK. Afterwards, he was the ambassador to India and Sri Lanka (1995-1998), Egypt (1998-2000) and a number of Arabic countries, and from 2005 to Japan and South Korea. Through his service as an ambassador to various nations, Dr. Stambuk was able to interface closely with Margaret Thatcher in the UK, Mother Teresa in India, and the most recent Prime Minister of Japan.
He published 35 books of poetry, which were translated to several languages (English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Albanian, Japanese..)

Dargo san will attend WHA Japan conference to be held in Tokyo on April 29. I will frame the haiga and present it to him then.

Great haiku in a very good haiga. The viewer has to decide decide, whether the raven is an animal or a symbol, whether the pole is a landmark or a place to torture, whether the verse is about death or selfconfidence, about defending or hunting.

The author will be pleased, Kuni san. I would be, for sure.

Best wishes
