Helen Buckingham lives in Wells, England and her haiku have been featured in many journals. Her note – “Fifty-eight years since the seed was planted, Sanguinella provides a scrump back through the often bloody orchard that constitutes my life until now, from the rural pickings gathered over recent years in the bonsai city of Wells, to the tangled branches of a childhood spent battling various forms of blight in a mulberry-stained corner of South London.” Additional books by Helen in the THF library include Armadillo Basket and Water On the Moon.
