— Translated into Japanese by Hidenori Hiruta
Debbie Strange makes poems, music, photographs, and art in Winnipeg, the heart of Canada.
She has a deep reverence for nature, and her creative passions connect her more closely to the world and to herself.
A publication archive, reviews of her books, and hundreds of haiga may be accessed at: debbiemstrange.blogspot.com
I have attached a bio photo, as well as a haiga that received an Award of Excellence in the 2015 World Haiku Association Commemorative Haiga Contest.
Thank you for taking the time to read. To have my work translated into Japanese would truly be an honour for me!
my best regards,
