Emerging and flown

26 April, 2019

Thank you for journeying with us through our Emergence themed haiku!

I hope you have enjoyed the haiku and feel inspired to write your own.

I’m sorry that hardly any of the haiku appeared on my Facebook Page this time. Someone has reported Pure Haiku to Facebook as having “Abusive Posts”. Not totally sure what this means but am assuming it’s a malicious troll type of thing.

I am therefore slowly withdrawing from Facebook and have created a MeWe account where I will post future haiku from Pure Haiku. Please join me there!


Due to the demands of my current job, I am taking a break from Pure Haiku submissions for a few months.

But I have scheduled a few posts here (twice a month) to keep you going over the Summer!

Pure Haiku will open again to submissions in September 2019. The new theme will be posted here and on the Submit Page when the submissions window is open!

Have a mindful Summer!

white foam hisses back

uncovers purple-red sand

sunset wetly gleams

pale shoot erupts up

breaks through ice-encrusted earth;

the first snowdrop blooms

green in the Frost, lurks

Thaw brings out verdant promise –

Twigs, cross their fingers

“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.”
