I'm a day early, I know, but it's the Easter weekend and like many of you I am taking a holiday. May I wish you all the very best for this holiday period, one that is traditionally about hope and renewal. I think we need a bit of that at the moment, don't we? As well as haiku, of course.
You are all magnificent friends and have helped me so much in the last quarter, you've supported all the Poetry Pea projects:
Journal (it's at the printers)
Podcast, speaking of which there's a cracking podcast out on Monday with Randy Brooks and Ted Sherman
Pea TV both the haiku moments and the latest, the prompt
Volunteering for editing, readings and community judging
5 favourite haiku... keep them coming, because there are already some fabulous haiku in the collection that I did not know about
The renku. We're starting a new one soon, if you'd like to join in let me know. First come first served
Thank you so much
Your mission for the weekend, should you choose to do it:
Enjoy the holiday
After the weekend:
Please start sending your submissions for the latest topic: Euphony, haiku and senryu that concentrate on the sound within them. Deadline 20th April.
A haiku for the weekend,
barbwire holds its ground,
roams the prairie
