The Portal Closes …

10 December, 2018

Thank you for taking the perilous routes through time and space, through memory and history to explore the meaning of portal.

I hope you enjoyed the haiku on the way and have discovered more creative writers on this journey.

Pure Haiku is taking a rest for a few weeks now but a new theme will be announced on Friday, 4th January 2019. If you would like to be informed as soon as Pure Haiku is open to submissions, make sure you’ve signed up to receive posts from this site.

If you’re still in need of creativity and inspiration, I am blogging over at Dragonscale Clippings for a few more weeks yet until the Christmas break. Over there I blog about my writing and share some of my other poetry and paintings too!

Have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year. See you again in 2019!

the wormhole closes …

now an ochre city of

opal-studded sand

on the other side –

sparks of cerulean blue

crackle in the breeze

Here is the second haiku from our Featured Haiku Writer – Isabel Caves. Isabel is the author of Strange Beings and uses her blog at Isabel Caves as an outlet for her creativity which expresses itself in photographs, stories and poetry.

This haiku stood out because it tells of what is on the other side of the portal, I imagined the portal to be at the writer’s back.

returned to a memory

of a soft pink spring

you open to me

with dragonesque harmonies;

darkly-lit spectrum

gliding sunset sails

water trails on waking dreams –

slip the horizon

Rich Unger tells me, “Given I go by Imp as my pseudonym and am part Gallifreyan, on the distaff side of the family, I have a passing knowledge of portals, (as much as they allow given their capricious nature).” Want to know more? Visit him on facebook at Rich Unger and at High Coo and The Writers Club.

So many different images in just three lines – this haiku made me remember the film At World’s End.
