Pure Haiku is currently OPEN to Submissions.
The THEME is EMERGENCE.
This time, you are not allowed to use the word Emergence 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 EMERGENCE.
The OED defines the word EMERGENCE as “The process of becoming visible after being concealed.” Further definitions can be found at Oxford Dictionaries.
Delight me and surprise me with your haiku that paint vivid pictures of EMERGENCE. Don’t be confined to the obvious, be subtle, be clever, be imaginative! 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 25th January 2019 at midnight.
EMERGENCE themed haiku written in the traditional/classical form (5-7-5 syllables) will be posted on this site between March & April 2019.

purehaiku (at) gmail (dot) com
with SUBMISSIONS, the current THEME and your NAME in the subject line.
Please include the following in the body of the email: –
Your first name
Your last name

Your haiku (all 5 in one email please) (they do not have to be titled)

One sentence introducing yourself. Be quirky and interesting – you want people to visit your blog, don’t you?!
(Even if you have had haiku published on this site before, please still include all this information as I do not keep any details of previous submissions. By including all the required details it makes my life easier when scheduling haiku. Thank you.)
