Haiku: Ken Sawitri, Indonesia

Painting: Jimat Achmadi, Indonesia

Note: Hand drawing batik use a 'canthing tulis' to apply wax to cover ornamentation to keep it free from coloring matter during the dyeing process. For controlling the flowing of fluid hot wax, the 'canthing' often puffed before applying the wax on clothes.   winotosastro
Stjepan Rozić & Djurdja Vukelić-Rozić, Croatia

For an Editor's Choice haiga, I've chosen this one by Djurdja (our Ambassador for Croatia), and her husband Stephan. Most folks know that when it comes to haiku, I'm against "direct" personification, however in this particular case and placed with this particular photograph, it only enhances the moment. That, and the fact that I personally happen to know that there is a belief found anywhere in the Balkans, that everything has a "soul", which we are privileged to see in Stephan's great photo shot.—haiga editor an'ya, USA
Irena Iris Szewczyk, Poland
