BOUWE BROUWER, DAAN BR., MYRTHE HEERINGA, BRAM SCHOKKER, SHARIQ TABASSUM and HUGO TOP

We do hope you enjoy this delightful series of haiga by teacher/haiku poet Bouwe Brouwer and five of the students in his class. Originally, Bouwe sent the haiga with Shariq's green photo to our Family Challenge with the following explanation:

I'm a teacher at a primary school. And sometimes I let one of the children use my digital camera to document what is going on in the classroom (or outside). At this particular time a lot of the children were outside looking for caterpillars. Shariq, a seven year old boy from my class, took this picture. He was delighted when I wrote a haiku for it and when I put the haiga on my blog

Bouwe's haiku have been published in Vuursteen (Flint) the magazine of the Dutch and Flemish haiku society, Frogpond, The Heron's Nest, Shamrock, Sketchbook and Tinywords. More of his work may be found on his website, De Oude Zeeman.
