Two scifaiku and an SF-themed haiga today from David J. Kelly. David (aka @motto_sakura on Twitter) lives and works in Dublin, Ireland. He is fascinated by the potential of Japanese short form poetry and his work has appeared in numerous journals. His first collection of haiku (Hammerscale from the Thrush’s Anvil) was published in November 2016 by Alba Publishing.
