Haiga 715 Andres Ehin haiku
Haiku by Andres Ehin (Estonia). Artwork by myself.
Andres san recently passed away. He was born in Estonia in 1940. He was awarded many prizes for his poetry, including the Estonian National Prize 2001 for his poetry collection Subconsciousness is always jolly. He has travelled extensively and read his poetry at many international festivals.
I met him several times at World Haiku Association Conferences. He was a large man, but always had quiet and gentle manner. His soul is probably whiter than the swans, and will return to this earth in the future as a baby to resume walking on his haiku path.
