Carpe Diem Theme Week (6) 7 Jane's last haiku


- - - - inspirational post from © Chèvrefeuille - - - -

"Maybe you know that a lot of haiku poets wrote their Jisei and Werner shared Jane's last haiku with me through the mail. This was Jane's last haiku, her Jisei:

with the moon
night too disappears
into the ocean

© Jane Reichhold (1937-2016)

Share your memories and your haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form about Jane Reichhold with us all. Please remember Jane in your heart and let her spirit inspire you.

morning dew
evaporates at sunrise
a skylark's song

Jane Reichhold was a photo, a name and an inspiration.  Unlike many in the group, I neither wrote nor spoke personally with Ms. Reichhold.  Her responses to others questions were read and digested.  Only recently have I begun reading some of her books on haiku.  A legacy of learning and teaching is left behind for her followers.

into the night
sounds of gentle footsteps
echo on the path
