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!

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.”

This haiku is part of our Emergence theme.

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.
