Failed Haiku - A Journal of English Senryu, Vol. 4, Issue 40, April 2019
Thank you to Mike Rehling, the editor, for selecting this hagia and for his lovely comments below:
Debbie is a master at haiga. I don't know what the diagnosis is she is referring to, or if the poet is the one who has received it, but I do believe that dragonfly is indeed lucky for them. As least I want to believe it. The hints of color in the dragonfly may just be the poet's way of conveying her own feelings about the situation and imbuing the dragonfly with her own hope.
