  1. Hvala cijenjenom i poštovanom Hidenori Hiruta na prijevodu ,
    a dragoj Mihovili na trudu oko djece Osnovne škole Vežica Rijeka koje potiče na pisanje haikua.
    Njezini haikui i haige su odraz njene duše na prirodu i doživljaje.
    Želim joj još puno haiku trenutaka i inspiracije. Pozdrav iz Viškova kod Rijeke.
