BP: Tinywords

This pedometer geek is honored to have one of my haiku published alongside many stalwart haiku in the 18.1 Issue of Tinywords. It is the haiku for today and can be found at tinywords.com. Check out all of them there as every one of them are worth reading.

As for mine, it is as follows:

resort town…
the watering hole
the locals use

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    I imagine a small tourist place out of season…with happy locals. 🙂
    I shall have a look at the link later. I enjoy a weekly entry to https://thetwiglets.wordpress.com/
    There is no one form there. Though the tag line is “The shorter the better”.

    • Actually, it is a very small place right on the pier called the Old Fish House. Maybe 20 people can squeeze in, but tourists, so far, have not really discovered it. A few many stumble in, but I haven’t noticed too many unfamiliar people there. Not that we go there that frequently….maybe 5-6 times since it opened about a year or so ago. On the other hand, Justin Bieber went there once for coffee the day after his concert in Cleveland. He wanted to fish somewhere and his driver brought him to Huron for the fishing. He decided he thought Huron was a pretty neat little city. This place sells coffee in the morning and adult beverages in the afternoon.

      I will check out the link…thanks! You always have the best links. For what it is worth, there is a call for train haiku (or other haiku-like forms). You can find the link at vhoskings site here, and submission date is June 30, 2018. I don’t have much to submit but I probably will enter one or two. jacquiepea@telus.net is the email address and train haiku submission and name in the message line.


  2. Sorry, look at http://wildink.wordpress.com is the site for the train haiku. Vhosking just shared it, but I can’t find that link any more. I Googled train haiku and found it… Sorry to be so confusing.

    • Thank you so much for the compliment on my haiku. I am glad if you found something in it. While I write other things (flash fictions, poems, short stories, etc.), my focus is on writing haiku/senryu (I still don’t know the difference between the two) and I often feel that haiku is a form that I will never, ever master. So thank you, nightlake, for making my day. I am truly touched. ~nan


    • PS. Keep trying; don’t give up. It took me a long time, too, to get any publications.
      I have never managed to get published in Frogpond. I probably never will, either, as I won’t even submit to them any more. ~nan

        Oh. I see.. I like Tinywords as they have a comments’ section where other haiku writers can give constructive suggestions. Have frequently seen Alan Summers commenting there. I will certainly try to write and submit more work in places I haven’t been published. Thank you:)

  5. Alan Summers is an excellent haiku writer, and he is always helpful in his perspective. While I have not formally met him, he was one of my first “friends” on MySpace (how long ago was that) and it was our mutual love of haiku that made that connection. He often makes insightful comments on the Haiku Dialogue on The Haiku Foundation website. They have weekly prompts and I often submit there. I have had a fair amount of them accepted, too. One editor chooses from the various haiku submitted and there is a place to make comments. Alan often critiques haiku and finds things in the haiku that maybe even the author didn’t consider. You might to consider checking it over and submitting to it. I haven’t checked out the site yet this week (the column comes out on Wednesday morning and you can read all the haiku that have been accepted as well as see the new prompt that people write for the following week, for what it is worth). ~nan

      Thank you, Nancy. I will check the site and hopefully submit in the future. I have been writing more poetry and short fiction recently…Haiku needs a lot more thinking, doesn’t it? 🙂
