moulted feathers, cast off skins

litter my life’s rooms

“As a perceptual scientist, (a visual psychophysicist to be precise), the process of understanding the incoming data we receive should come as second nature, yet I’m always amazed how we can perceive things differently with a slight twist in our viewpoint.  As always, I take impish delight in penning a wry view of such.”

slow lift – swimmers tucked inside

move into the day

I am part writer, part lawyer and have written poems, plays, and lots of lists that need catching up on but sometimes transform into haiku instead. Discover more at Fleur Beaupert

Thank you to everyone who contributed on our theme of Celestial Bodies! Pat_Feb_17

I thoroughly enjoyed our deep space trek!

Pure Haiku is now taking a holiday, until the autumn, when a new theme will be posted.

I won’t be around much online until September/October, due to the busyness of my self-employed work!

Enjoy your summer and keep writing haiku!

If you enjoy haiku and other kinds of poetry, you might be interested in my first ever paperback poetry anthology. This Is Me is available as a paperback from Amazon.
