Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It is my pleasure to announce that Chèvrefeuille's Publications has created a new exclusive CDHK e-book "Only Footprints" by Candy. Candy was the winner of our 'tribute to Jane' kukai and won the opportunity to create an e-book.
The download link isn't ready now, but that will change later today.
Today we are going further on our journey through Japan, the "Motherland" of Haiku. Today I love to tell you all a little bit more about Ise Shrine. Ise Shrine is one of the most famous shrines of Japan and you sure will remember several haiku poets, e.g. Issa and Basho, which have written haiku in praise of Ise Shrine.
Everyone has pushed others in the crowd.
The Shrine Removal !

even more lonely
the moon still is
The Grand Shrine of Ise is the most important shrine of Shinto, so therefore I will "dive into" Shinto tomorrow.
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until February 12th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode, Shinto, later on.
