A couple months ago I finally acquired a copy of Chiyo-ni : Woman Haiku Master, by Patricia Donegan and Yoshie Ishibashi. It’s no longer in print and I’ve wanted this one for such a long time! So happy I came along a reasonably priced copy that is in good condition.🌸😃💗 #haiku#chiyoni#haikumasters#womenhaikupoets#PatriciaDonegan#YoshieIshibashi

from a US air strike on Mosul...
civilian casualties ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#so many civilians dying in US air strikes #now one civilian death in every 31 air strike from inaccurate US military info and/or planning & execution #little or no compensation for civilian victims #a human life in Iraq worth 2,500 US dollars (if even that is offered) #Bassim Razzo, who lost his Mosul family and home (detailed account by NYTIMES) was, after years of effort, offered an insulting recompense of $15,000, refusing it. #The Costs of War project at Brown University estimates over 200,000 civilians have been killed in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan
