Thank you to everyone who participated during our journey through Unfurling! Thank you to all the haiku writers, to all of you readers and to those who liked and commented on the contributions. And thank you too, to Elisa Ang for creating such an inspiring painting for us!

Elisa Ang also chose the Featured Haiku Writer for this theme – Tina Stewart Brakebill. Elisa was presented with 8 collections of haiku and had the difficult choice of choosing just one!

Elisa says of the entire shortlist – “Everyone did wonderful work writing unique haiku!”

And the reasons she chose Tina’s haiku are – “No 16 is my absolute favorite. The writer expresses life’s journey—from the time it springs forth to the time it bids farewell in a profoundly creative way. The poems give room to the imagination, and I genuinely appreciate it.”

(The shortlist is given to the artist with a number for each writer, instead of the writers’ names.)

Pure Haiku will be taking a little break now but submissions will be open once more in October 2021!

Make sure you check out all the pages (at the top of screen) for hints and tips on how to get your haiku published here on Pure Haiku!

Enjoy the rest of the summer and I’ll “see” you all again in the autumn. Meantime, take a few minutes to enjoy Elisa’s Unfurling painting once more…
