I had the pleasure of meeting Imma von Bodmershof (1895-1982) several times at the house of a dear relative in Switzerland, Lake Geneva, view on the Mont Blanc… A very friendly and noble Austrian lady, who made, among other works, hundreds of Haiku. The 7 poems I used for this composition come from the volume
