O haiku

Brown, leaf-laden air

wild geese calling in the night

Autumn, time of change

There was no reason

for the charge brought against him.

Pardon came too late.

when the spider leaves her mate

empty shell remains

sympathy follows wonder,

held memories of her past

trying not to smile

It’s Pure Haiku submission time again

Pure Haiku is Open to Submissions

Pure Haiku is currently OPEN to Submissions.

The THEME is PORTAL.

This time, you are not allowed to use the word Portal 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 PORTAL.

The OED defines the noun PORTAL as “a doorway, gate, or other entrance, especially a large and imposing one.”

Delight me and surprise me with your haiku that paint vivid pictures of PORTALS, real or imagined. Explore the Final Frontier, take me to universes I did not know existed or simply make me see an ordinary real-life portal in a different way … 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 a week’s slot for a single featured haiku writer.

The DEADLINE for submissions is 21st September 2018 at midnight.

PORTAL themed haiku written in the traditional/classical form (5-7-5 syllables) will be posted on this site between October and December 2018.

How to submit to Purehaiku

If you would like to submit your haiku for publication on this site, please send a maximum of 5 haiku written in the classical form on the current theme to: –

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 email address
Your haiku (all 5 in one email please) (they do not have to be titled)
The full address of your blog or website if you have one
The name you want to appear on the copyright
One sentence introducing yourself. Be quirky and interesting – you want people to visit your blog, don’t you?!

By submitting your haiku you confirm that you are the author of the work and that you give me permission to publish your work at Pure Haiku. The copyright remains with you, the author.

Please send me each haiku with just one or two lines of spacing between each one in the body of your email.

When you have emailed your submission, you should receive an auto reply informing you of the date when I will be in contact with you. If you do not receive an auto reply within 24 hours, please feel free to send a second email enquiring about your original submission.

I can only accept haiku for consideration if they are EMAILED to me at the above mentioned address. Please DO NOT submit haiku via the comments box or via a facebook message or via G+ messaging.

Please do not send attachments. I can only accept haiku that are submitted in the body of the email.

RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge 216 Hero&Coward

The hero never

seeks to condemn the coward

equals before God

 

in the cool dark earth

hero and coward await

the final journey
