Dancing Goddess

Today we start our explorations of Elisa Choi Ang’s beautiful Dancing Goddess painting.

Goddess
Painting by Elisa Choi Ang

Thank you to the 20 people who submitted their haiku back in February. I had great enjoyment reading through all 89 haiku! Only 4 entries were rejected outright, mainly because the basic guidelines hadn’t been adhered to. Of the remaining 16 contributors, 8 were short listed for the Featured Haiku Writer slot, but, as usual, only one was chosen!

We welcome back Jan Beekman, Merril D Smith, Claudia Messelodi, Von Smith, Sarah Connor, JulesPaige, Tina Stewart Brakebill, Susi Bocks, Bill Engleson and Goff James.

And we extend a warm welcome to 6 new contributors to Pure Haiku: V. Vaidehi, Dinesh Silva, Ave Jeanne Ventresca, San Lin Tun, Lissa Kelly and Radhika Puttige.

Haiku inspired by the beautiful painting above will appear every 2 days over the next few weeks. Each post will contain a haiku, a brief one line bio about the writer as well as a link to their blog/web site – simply click on their name in the copyright notice underneath the haiku.

The haiku writers have expressed themselves in the seasons, in love, in colour, in dance and in deities. Enjoy!
