A Haibun & Haiku Update

heron1Today I wanted to share some acceptances and also some submission openings in the haiku/haibun world. Most recently I was lucky enough to have pieces accepted at both Haibun Today and The Heron’s Nest.

First, here’s a winter themed haibun and then a haiku in the opposite season!

Browsing over at the latest Heron’s Nest there’s you’ll find a lot of great haiku – I especially enjoyed this one from Lorin Ford:

last quarter moon—
the scrape of a blade
on the whetstone

and this one from Chad Lee Robinson:

a distant cloud
dragging rain—
the swish of horse tails

It’s also worth checking out the latest issue of A Hundred Gourds – heaps of great haiku, haibun and renku there. This one I love from Raj K. Bose:

storm clouds
not knowing
my future

Submissions for all three journals are open now/closing soon:

ahundredgourds
haibuntoday
theheron’snest
