“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.

green in the Frost, lurks

Thaw brings out verdant promise –

Twigs, cross their fingers

gliding sunset sails

water trails on waking dreams –

slip the horizon

Rich Unger tells me, “Given I go by Imp as my pseudonym and am part Gallifreyan, on the distaff side of the family, I have a passing knowledge of portals, (as much as they allow given their capricious nature).” Want to know more? Visit him on facebook at Rich Unger and at High Coo and The Writers Club.

So many different images in just three lines – this haiku made me remember the film At World’s End. 

This haiku is part of our PORTAL theme!

looking in from out –

emotions’ twisted wormhole

– soul’s fenestration

I love the expressive emotion conveyed in these few words – again another, original take on the theme of portal.

Ocean

9 February, 2018
Welcome to 6 weeks of Ocean-themed haiku!
A trickle of haiku came in at the beginning of the submission period and by the deadline, the haiku were simply flooding in! We welcome back nine previous contributors and say hello to eleven newcomers; Kate Alsbury, Bruce Jewett, Isabel Caves, Kae Cheatham, Sarah Connor, Peter Bouchier, Matthew Saunders, Narmadhaa Sivaraja, Veronica Hosking, Rich Unger and D Avery.

There were a total of 28 people submitting 108 haiku between them. And I even had 7 potential featured haiku writers! It was really hard to whittle down the entries to the number of posts I had available. So some people are disappointed this time… If your haiku were rejected, please don’t let this put you off submitting to Pure Haiku in the future.
This time I will be posting Mondays to Fridays only. Scroll down to the end of this page to read the first haiku on the theme of Ocean today!
Make sure your diving suits are secure, that your boats are ship-shape and join my guests and I as we explore a little of the Ocean …
As always, feedback on each post helps and encourages every contributor. And please follow your fellow contributors’ blogs!

To begin our voyage, let’s hear from Rich Unger …
Mother calls to me –
salty baptismal tears wash
waves crash from afar

Rich Unger makes his first appearance here at Pure Haiku. His pseudonym “Imp” was given by a PhD in Medieval English Literature for playing fast and loose with the English language, and getting away with it, who could drawl ‘imp’ out into 3 syllables when she turned on her Harlan County accent. Click on the links to read his typeset poems found in his “impisms” photo album and others scattered thru his timeline. He also an admin for HIGH COO and The Writer’s Club.
