11 Jul Welcome Haiku Herman
The first copy of my book, a haiku anthology, has been sent via Parliament, to Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council, who was on official visit in Malta some weeks ago, writes haiku and has recently published his first haiku collection. This has earned him the nickname of Haiku Herman.
The book has an introduction by Prof Oliver Friggieri and by the late Rev Prof Peter Serracino Inglott. A special thanks also goes to Lino Spiteri for his patience, suggestions and especially his eye for detail.
haiku number 66 :
tension in the strings
balancing the scales
