Heike began writing haiku in 2007. Her poetry and short stories are published in magazines, anthologies and online editions. In autumn 2010, after a hiatus of nearly 25 years, she started to paint again. Her haiga have been published in Daily Haiga, A Hundred Gourds, Notes from the Gean, Simply Haiku and Sketchbook as well as here at Haigaonline.
"I live in Yemen, " she says, "but still I read a lot of books that inspire me and recall my winter time in Germany".
On her own website, Heike Gewi, you'll find poetry, haiga, and her work for the Yemen saijiki.
