Happy New Year!

3 January, 2023

Hope you are all well and rested after your Christmas break!

Just a quick note to let you know that Pure Haiku will re-open to submissions on 1st Febuary 2023. The new theme will be posted here along with guidelines and a new image to inspire you!

Meanwhile, you can find me over at Dragonscale Clippings and also on Twitter and very occasionally on Facebook. My Patreon Profile has been updated and I’m providing more indepth posts there about myself and my writing.

Don’t forget to pre-order your copy of Dead Man’s Witness before the launch date on 15th February! (The price will go up to £2.50 on 18th February…)

Enjoy January and see you all again in February!

Much love

Volcano Slumbers

28 November, 2022

The volcano sleeps once more, maybe a little uneasily at times, but for now, her eruption of rage is over and we can all breathe a sigh of relief!

Thank you once again to everyone who submitted their haiku in June for this theme. Even if you didn’t have your work accepted for the Volcano theme, I hope you will send in your work again when Pure Haiku opens to submissions in February 2023!

Thank you also to artist Elisa Ang for creating such a beautiful and yet devastating painting of a volcano in all her moods, as well as choosing one of the shortlisted poets for one of the two Featured Haiku Writer slots!

Don’t forget that my third poetry collection, This Is Me, is available to download from Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, Nook and many other online stores! Check out the book trailer HERE and listen to my playlist HERE.

Duotrope offered me the chance for an interview a few months ago which I took, and you can check it out HERE!

One of my artistic collaborators, Jonathon B. Hoyt, now has his own blog! Please take a look and follow and like his posts!

And now, it’s time for me to take a rest from both Pure Haiku and Dragonscale Clippings until January 2023. Wishing you all a peaceful and restful Christmas Holiday… See you in the New Year!

beyond consciousness
the deep void turned inside out
on the edge of time

tension fights with sleep--
anxiety rises, falls--
mind-body spills out
