Are there any examples of Haiku poets that wrote Haiku in 2 different languages? On the one hand, I feel more comfortable writting in Spanish, since my vocabulary is much broader. But on the other hand, I do want to improve my English and also, there aren't that many people to share Haiku with in Spain.

Hi Tomás

Yes, I know especially of haiku poets who write in Swedish, Italian and German (German tends not to work great with keeping the number of syllables down though!).

I am trying to think of Spanish language haiku poets but there must be some. You would probably be surprised and there might even be a Spanish haiku society or similar!

Here is something from The Haiku Foundation on the subject: https://www.thehaikufoundation.org/omeka/files/original/e76226e68e309a763bdbbacaa8ed51b1.pdf
