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!

Thank you for sailing with us on this Ocean-themed journey!
A new theme will be announced on 2nd April so keep a look out for that! As usual you’ll have 3 weeks to submit your work here.
Don’t forget that if you submit 4-5 haiku you’ll be in with a chance to be selected as the featured haiku writer for the theme!
I’m also releasing a FREE book on 2nd April at my other blog, Dragonscale Clippings So don’t miss out on Silver Fire, Volume One of The Kaerling!
