On a roll

This started off as a one-item blog post but over the last few hours it has snowballed—apologies, that’s not very seasonable! 🎃

Haiku Dialogue, a weekly feature on The Haiku Foundation, is a great source of inspiration for haiku, and also a way to see how other poets respond to the same prompt.

iThe current curator, Australian poet Marietta McGregor, has been posting one of her photographs with a brief comment in order to inspire participants. A week later, she features a selection of her favourite verses. Today I was happy to learn that one one of mine had been selected. It was inspired by a real event while shopping in the city nearest to my hometown. It was a magical moment and I stayed for a while to admire the heron.

And I was even happier to hear just a couple of hours later that my entries in the 13th Yamadera Basho Memorial Museum English Haiku Contest were selected to feature in the contest anthology.

As if this wasn’t enough excitement for one day in the life of a haiku poet, I’ve also discovered that my monoku has been published today in one of my favourite journals—tinywords! 🕺

Happy Halloween to all! 🎃

  2. Thank you, Marie—I’ve just added the one-liner from tinywords as I’d forgotten to include it!

    Rachel was also a big fan of tinywords and from memory she had quite a few haiku published there. 🥰
