It’s Here!

14 April, 2017

Libby has contributed to Pure Haiku in the past. Now she has another book of poetry out – this one is all about elfje! (And yes, she’s included some guest elfje too, including some of mine!)

Simply Elfje

Final cover version ‘Simply Elfje’ final cover.

Good News! My ‘Simply Elfje’ book of the blog is now available to purchase from Amazon. I have tweaked the colour of the cover a little and here is the revised version.

To buy a copy from Amazon UK please click here. It is also available from and in Europe.

There will eventually be an e-book version for Kindle, however I will be away now for a couple of weeks and have run out of time to do the conversion. I will do it on my return and hopefully it will be available in early May – watch this space.

Freya’s Newsletter

20 March, 2017

just so you all know why there won’t be any posts or re-blogs here on Pure Haiku for a while…!

Dragonscale Clippings

By now I would have normally emailed the link to the current newsletter to all my subscribers. If you’re wondering why it hasn’t appeared, that’s because I’m having to put my newsletter on hold this year.
The main reason for this is that I am moving house and starting a new enterprise. I didn’t get a chance to get the first episode of the new story out this month due to all the things I’ve had to organise for the move etc. I’m really sorry about this!
My plan is to just rest from the newsletter this year and then commence serialising The Attar of Chervil in 2018. I hope all of you who subscribe are OK with the wait! House moving and setting up new enterprises are time consuming jobs!
An update will be posted at Current Story when I am ready to continue with the newsletter once more…

separate from the rest
brothers, sisters, context

winter haiku

8 March, 2017
jagged feathered wings
outstretched against hard blue sky
black beak gleams; crow hunts

today’s re-blog comes from Dragonsilk’s blog!


A tantalising scent,

salted and seasoned, sea breezed

like a wind blown wish.
