Pure Haiku is still currently OPEN to Submissions.
The THEME is MONSTER.
But this time, you are not allowed to use the words Monster or Monstrous in your haiku/senyru (and you cannot use these words in the title, if you choose to provide titles for your submissions). I want to receive haiku/senyru that are implicit in their mentions of Monster.
There so many different slants on this theme. Please explore them all and surprise me!
The DEADLINE for submissions is 20th October 2017 at midnight.
MONSTER themed haiku written in the traditional/classical form (5-7-5 syllables) will be posted on this site in November & December 2017.
Please explore any meaning of MONSTER – I will accept both haiku and senyru.
