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.

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!

frustration simmers

sudden release – tears flow

unhappiness shows

shrug off brittle skin

shoulders extend, dry downwards;

warm breeze gives me flight

white foam hisses back

uncovers purple-red sand

sunset wetly gleams
