This month Sweden is the country in the World of Haiku on the Haiku Foundation’s website. A number of poets are featured in this on-line anthology.
My two poems were first published in Swedish in my first haiku collection Skiftningar (Miders Förlag 2013). “Ground frost” was later translated into English and German in Chrysanthemum, issue 17, 2015. “Rain” appeared in English translation in the Indian anthology Heart Breaths: Book of Contemporary Haiku (Cyberwit 2016).
Unfortunately, the editors of this digital collection, saw fit to translate themselves, rather than used my translations from already published versions.
