For the Joy of Haiku

I’m a little late with this announcement, but another one of my haiku has been featured on the Poetry Pea Podcast along with a number of other lovely haiku on the theme of joy. Mine features a dog.

You can listen to the Pea Podcast here and also read the text of the many haiku included.

I submitted ten haiku on this theme and two were selected for publication. Both the one on the podcast and another will be included in The Poetry Pea Journal of Haiku and Senryu to be published in the fall and available on Amazon. I’ll be sure to share a link when it’s out.

I didn’t let the other eight haiku go to waste, though. I’ve added some to photos and posted on Instagram. I thought it would be nice to share two of those here.

If you like to write haiku or senryu, you should submit yours to Patricia at Poetry Pea. The theme for September is loss and the deadline is September 1, so you still have a few days to get something in. Check out the submission guidelines here.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.
