Naviarhaiku226 – he won’t go to sleep


One of the things I like the most about the Haiku challenge is that sometimes I come across incredible artists I’ve never heard of before.

Alvaro Cardona-Hine was a poet, painter, composer and long-time Zen student; born in Costa Rica, he spent most of his adult life in the US, and in 1986 opened an art gallery in Truchas, New Mexico, together with his wife Barbara McCauley. He passed away in 2016, but the art gallery is still active. A bio of this talented and restless creative man can be found at
