Below are a few haiku from this beautiful little book:

Day after day
Bits of the chained bicycle disappear
 Annie Bachini

Deux heures du matin
Un tout petit insecte
Traverse la page blanche
 Henri Chevignard

stluczone lustro –
w kazdym kawalku
te same oczy
 Grzegorz Sionkowski

Min datters gave
En mellemrød stofrose
Til mit hvide hår
 Hanne Hansen

(English translations are in the anthology.)

In his foreword, David Cobb writes: "We hope to have exemplified how one small poetic activity is serving to promote understanding and collaboration, as well as development of a shared micro-culture, among all European peoples."
