I am looking for haiku that capture a single, vivid image in words.
I like snapshots frozen in time, conjuring something visual or audible or tactile that can be conveyed to the reader in just 17 syllables.
I like haiku that use the English language in an interesting way and that include juxtaposition and/or contrasts, looking at objects in a new, refreshing way.
I am looking for haiku that stand alone and say what they need to say by themselves without the need of a picture. I want the words themselves to convey a picture.
Whether you are a beginner or a pro, each haiku will be considered individually on its own merits. Please check your haiku contains the correct amount of syllables on each line before you email them to me.
Please note that I do not post photographs as it slows the blog down. I am unlikely to post haiku portraying negative views of politics or religion. Always remember, don’t TELL me, SHOW me!
