This week at the Haiku Foundation’s weekly column, Haiku Dialogue, continues the pilgrimage, which is being guided by P.H. Fischer, the guest editor. As he described it, he described the following as to his choices:
”Your poems continue to inspire me with their breadth of experience and depth of feeling and spirit. As my memories move along the way toward Santiago de Compostela in Spain, this week’s purposeful poems also took me to a labour room, a deserted beach, a New England diner, a school play, Croagh Patrick, a highway during rush hour, fabulous forests, and a sombre concert hall, among many other locales. I encountered a black hole, alpine reflecting pools, witches, hawks, wildflowers, a lama, the smell of sizzling bacon, and a solo traveller loving themselves under a million stars. I can’t wait to share all the fantastic poems selected for this week’s column.”
Per usual, there were haiku published by a global community of haiku poets. Poets from Australia, Canada, Croatia, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Malta, The Netherlands, Romania, the United Kingdom, and the United States were represented.

In other haiku happenings, a relatively new haiku journal, Kingfisher, Issue 6, has been published. The journal was founded and is edited by Tanya McDonald and published by Wayward Chicken Publishing of Happy Valley, Oregon.
This pedometer geek writer is grateful that the editor selected a haiku for inclusion. It is as follows:
