Comet’s Trail …

25 June, 2018

Thank you to everyone who contributed on our theme of Celestial Bodies! Pat_Feb_17

I thoroughly enjoyed our deep space trek!

Pure Haiku is now taking a holiday, until the autumn, when a new theme will be posted.

I won’t be around much online until September/October, due to the busyness of my self-employed work!

Enjoy your summer and keep writing haiku!

If you enjoy haiku and other kinds of poetry, you might be interested in my first ever paperback poetry anthology. This Is Me is available as a paperback from Amazon.

Here is the final haiku from our featured haiku writer; Kerfe Roig. “I’m interested in the places between, the transitions, the stories we tell about how and where and why. I look for connections, mirrors, repetitions, gaps, contradictions, the interaction of opposites, the point where endings and beginnings meet.” Discover more at Kerfe Roig and methodtomadness.

when darkness is all

I concur with this haiku’s sentiments. How can we, as mere humans, define the universe around us when really, we know nothing …
