This week it’s someone we first met in episode 11, Goran Gatalica. As with many of our guests he is a scientist who writes poetry. He is quite prolific and has been published in many journals and haiku anthologies. You may have heard me congratulating him a number of times. If you’d like to read more of his work see the links at the end.

In a week when the topic of migration has brought the European Union another political crisis, Goran, in his senryu, reminds us that whatever you think about migration, when all is said and done, we are actually talking about human beings. His piece:

during war –
children in a boat
sharing a whisper

It’s quite a sobering isn’t it?

I think I would just like to say thank you to Goran for his moving poem and leave it at that.
