I and Sayumi Kamakura is in Helsinki of Finland now, after attendace to Lahti Internatinal Writers' Reunion 2009. In this capital facing the Baltic Sea, we will take a short rest and return to Japan.
During Lahti Internatinal Writes' Reunion, we met again Europen friend poets, made a new friendship between many writers. I addressed my keynote speech in English "Haiku beyond Horizons", read my own haiku at two reading sessios.
I and Sayumi Kamakura's haiku translated into Finnish by Kai Nieminen has appeared in the top page of the Finnish literature magazine "Parnasso"'s recent issue (3 2009).
Our schedule was too tight to write new haiku, but I could be inspired by clear and silent Finnish atmosphere to compose one haiku as follows:

my hand and
a jungle of moss
