Ghostlight fades …

30 March, 2022

Thank you to everyone who submitted their haiku for this theme! Thank you to everyone who has liked / shared / commented on the various haiku that I’ve posted over the last 3 months.

I have enjoyed our journey, exploring the beautiful fractal created by Troi David Loy!

It’s time for Pure Haiku to take a rest again, but you can always pop over to my other blog at Dragonscale Clippings for more inspiration if you wish!

Pure Haiku will open to submissions on a new theme on 1st June 2022 when I will post a new painting by artist Elisa Ang!

Meantime, have a creative and inspiring spring and I hope you to see you all again in June!

Much love Freya xxx

angelic presence
banishes these shadowed thoughts
floods abyss with light

glassy dark iris expands;
