Pure Haiku is OPEN to submissions on the theme of ORCHID by Jonathon B. Hoyt until midnight on 28th February 2023.
Please read the full guidelines at Submit before sending in your work!
Why Pure Haiku? I originally set up this blog so I had somewhere to publish my traditional haiku. In 2010 I was having haiku rejected purely on the basis that they weren’t modern. Apparently, traditional haiku are too difficult to write! Really? Well, 5000+ followers later, I think I’ve made my point! Find out more at About.
I think this was a difficult theme. I myself had to delve into some research to find inspiration for the pieces I submitted. Especially when you can’t use the word in your verse.
Good luck 🙂
It’s good to hear that people are delving deep – that’s what I wanted!
