Very sad news about our friend and forum member Rachel Sutcliffe

Following communication with Rebecca Sutcliffe, sister of Rachel Sutcliffe and with permission from Rachel's parents, it is with a very heavy heart that I inform the haiku world of Rachel's recent passing.

Despite suffering from a very serious autoimmune disorder for many years, Rachel always displayed a wonderful sense of humour and was a fine and prolific writer of haiku and senryu. Her poetry has been published widely in dedicated haiku journals and on her blog Project Words.

Rachel will be dearly missed by all in the global haiku community. I was honoured to include this monoku of hers in a selection back in October on The Haiku Foundation's 'Per Diem' feature. I think it demonstrates her ability to find something positive in times of such adversary.

May our friend rest in peace.

Thank you Marion. It is indeed sad news. I shall miss seeing Rachel's haiku, always worth reading.

I write haiku because they're there to be written ...
