Hortensia- I have read your work for quite a long time. I love your work, but have never had the chance to tell you since you don't have a spot for comments! :)
I have been thinking of going toward haibun for quite a time - maybe soon will be the time.

I'm coming at this series late - but glad I did. Very visual pieces - lots of light and movement and feeling. I especially like the first two, and the elm one.
