thrust of verdant shoot
explodes in raw mosaic;
gentle, fronded blades

My aim in life is to enchant, entertain and engage readers through my writing.

Arturina spins on through the galaxy …

Well, that’s it for another theme and another year!


Chameleon by Elisa Choi Ang

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our theme of Arturina and to all those who showed their appreciation of the published haiku.

It has been a difficult year but I am pleased to journey with you all into a brighter future.

Thank you to EVERYONE who has contributed, liked, shared and commented on the posts here at Pure Haiku. I’m sorry I can’t respond to every post or always reciprocate, but both my guests and I really appreciate the time you all take to respond to our journeys through different themes in haiku.

Pure Haiku will be taking a break for a few weeks now, but I plan to open the site to submissions again in February 2021.

If you enjoy short form poetry, I do often post such verses along with my own creative artwork at Dragonscale Clippings.

For now, have a wonderful Christmas and may the New Year bring you all much joy and inspiration.

Much love

Freya xxx

deep snow cushions pod

from sterile interior

she now emerges

My characters have different points of view, some of which I disagree with.

on galaxies’ edge

she stands, nakedly aware;

such a frail frame

I share poetry, prose, paintings and sometimes photographs at my other blog, Dragonscale Clippings.

At last we meet her – the mysterious Arturina herself!

the chameleon

wide-eyed, vigilant, waiting

for the chase to start

I don’t preach about politics, religion or the environment.
