Unfurling Results

26 March, 2021

Just a quick post to let you all know that all the emails (Acceptances / Rejections / Results) have now been sent out.

If you HAVEN’T received an email from me, and you know you submitted haiku to me for the theme of Unfurling, please check your Junk and Spam filters before emailing me.

Also, a couple of people have given me emails which, when I email them, block my reply to them. This means that I can’t tell you whether or not your haiku have been accepted. If this is you, please contact me at purehaiku@gmail.com with an email address that won’t block my replies to you – thank you!

If you’ve received an email from me that has Acceptance in the subject line, that means I’ve accepted one of your haiku for publication on this site between 1st May and 1st August.

If you’ve received an email from me that has either Results or Rejection in the subject line, that means none of your haiku have been accepted for publication. I’m sorry I can’t give specific feedback – I had 221 haiku from 55 different writers to read through this time – but you can get a general idea of why your haiku weren’t accepted at SELECTION.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to send in their submissions – I’ll be blogging more about Unfurling on 1st May… See you all then!

Reach out; Take my hand

Lift me high above the fray

I’m drawn to your heat

frosted fire burns

neon lightning strikes ocean;

these contradictions!

Ecstasy distilled

Diffused with vibrant colours

Oh! to dance again.

I write travellogues, now taking baby steps into the wondrous world of poetry.

october cloud burst

watercolours blown away–

this pain from each toe

I strive to live each day as if I were a haiku…seeking preciseness of word, observing the unnoticed, and creating my own sounds of music.
