Pure Haiku – OPEN!

30 August, 2019

Pure Haiku is currently OPEN to Submissions.

The THEME is DISINTEGRATE.

This time, you are not allowed to use the word Disintegrate in your haiku/senyru (and you cannot use this word in the title, if you choose to provide titles for your submissions). I want to receive haiku/senyru that are implicit in their mentions of DISINTEGRATE.

The OED defines the verb DISINTEGRATE as “To break up into small parts as the result of impact or decay.” Further definitions can be found at Oxford Dictionaries.

Delight me and surprise me with your haiku that paint vivid pictures of DISINTEGRATE. Search deep for meaning and definition. Don’t be obvious, be intriguing! Make the reader puzzle and delight in a sudden ah-ha moment! As always I’m looking for excellent use of language and words that conjure up clear, vivid pictures; show, don’t tell.

There will be 28 slots for individual haiku plus space for up to 5 days for a single featured haiku writer.

The DEADLINE for submissions is 20th September 2019 at midnight.

DISINTEGRATE themed haiku written in English in the traditional/classical form (5-7-5 syllables) will be posted on this site between October & December 2019.
